Complete waste of time. Don't waste yours.

The acting is excellent. (How could it not be with this cast?) But the film is, to say the least, surreal. To say the most, it's an unrealistic, fanciful, pile of...

This movie was not bad and could be considered a remake of the one called Tough Guys, from the eighties, with Burt Lancaster.

Great movie you'd expect from this group of actors. I'm glad I watched it.

These guys deserve a better script.

Expected so much more with this cast. MUST have been hard up for cash to sign up for this.

July 12, 2014......ah, what can I say, while I didn't hate this movie, I did get a little bored watching it. I didn't really get the ending either, maybe I was just having too much trouble staying awake. I really like Pacino, but this was just kind of old, (the dance scene felt like a bad re-do of [Scent of a Woman] and the penis comedy just didn't make me laugh. I've watched too much other really good stuff lately, so this movie just made me feel like I wasted my time. Oh well, can't win 'em all!

A movie with some good parts and some ok parts. I wish that the time with all three of the guys could have been longer.

Thoroughly enjoyed. Acting was excellent and the story was both serious and fun.

Val: So how's your health?

Hirsch: Well, they took something out of me a couple of months ago.

Val: What'd they take out?

Hirsch: I don't know. I didn't ask, it's none of my business. But I'm a little more streamlined now, a little more aerodynamic.

Val: They say we die twice. Once when the breath leaves our body, and once when the last person we know says our name.

Doc: Nobody messes with these guys. These are the type of guys that take your kidneys out and not even sell them.
