The RED and Expendables franchises, and the upcoming comedy Last Vegas, have made it clear: the elderly are here to stay, or at least we need to keep letting them think that until we can find a home that takes their insurance. So, since no one has yet thought to remake 1986's Tough Guys, now we've got Stand Up Guys, a Fischer Stevens-directed film in which Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin play decrepit career criminals having a wild night on the town as a last hurrah before Walken completes a mutually-acknowledged hit out on Pacino. Think The Bucket List, if that film came with a more persistent reminder that Morgan Freeman was going to murder Jack Nicholson.

So, Al Pacino... he's just Liza Minnelli sans makeup now, right?
