Product Description

Loaded with laughs, THE CREW features Academy Award(R)-winner Richard Dreyfuss (MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS) and Burt Reynolds (MYSTERY, ALASKA) in a sidesplitting story about a set of golden-year goodfellas fighting to protect their last piece of turf! Back in the days when mobsters were larger than life, none lived bigger than Bobby (Dreyfuss), "Bats" (Reynolds), "The Brick" (Dan Hedaya, SHAFT), and "Mouth" (Seymour Cassel, RUSHMORE). But now well into retirement, the old crew find themselves suddenly facing eviction from their run-down Miami Beach hotel -- The Raj Mahal. That's when they decide there's only one thing left to do -- turn back the clock and pull one last hit in order to save their home! As their wacky plot unfolds, you'll happily laugh along when these grandfatherly gangsters set off a hilarious chain of events that quickly spins outrageously out of control.

Amazon.com

Call them "Grumpy Old Goodfellas," old mobsters who trade in their rods for a retirement home. Fast-talking Richard Dreyfuss is the nominal leader of the quartet of retired Jersey wiseguys, and thick-headed softy Dan Hedaya, silver-haired lady's man Seymour Cassel, and Burt Reynolds, an enforcer with a pacemaker, round out the group. When their Florida apartment house threatens to go condo with young, upscale tenants, they flex their creaky muscles and scare off investors with a devious bit of mob theatrics. Their success spirals out of control, and soon they're up to their toupees in blackmail, murder for hire, a homicide investigation by a cop who just may be Dreyfuss's character's long-lost daughter (Carrie-Anne Moss), and a mob war with a Hispanic drug lord. Jennifer Tilly costars as a scheming stripper, and Lainie Kazan is terrific as a brassy widow.

The script, by Kingpin cowriter Barry Fanaro, flirts with leering sexual humor and outrageous gags while turning unrepentant killers into a cute and cuddly bunch of snappy-dressing codgers. Leave it to director Michael Dinner to transform that into a warm, sweet, good-natured film that explores the way the aged lose dignity in their later years and celebrates the strength of four guys who draw on their skills, their courage, and their spirit to take their dignity back. --Sean Axmaker

"The Crew" is comprised of Richard Dreyfuss (Bobby), the brains of the outfit, Burt Reynolds (Bats), the hot-tempered muscle, Seymour Cassel (Mouth), the quiet ladies man and Dan Hedaya, who plays "The Brick." He's not stupid but, as Dan says in his interview segment, "I guess his thought process is a little different from most people." The movie starts out with a flashback of them as four young wiseguys pulling a job, then flashes forward to them as four old men sitting on a porch. Bat turns to Bobby and complains, "You said the good times were gonna last forever." Bobby replies, "I thought we'd be dead by now!" The story concerns them trying to save their rundown, Miami Beach apartment house (the Raj Mahal) from going condo. Each of their schemes backfires and gets them further into trouble with the local drug lord and the police. The plot twists hold one's interest throughout the film, but the quirky lead characters really carry this picture. "The Crew" is a movie that proves that Mafioso are people too!

Format: VHS Tape
This is a very amusing film about four mobsters who end up in a Florida retirement home but find it boring so they set out to find jobs, fun and women. It is very slapstick at times, often rude, sometimes violent but always funny. Dreyfuss is great as the Hit-Man with a heart who watches his now grown daughter from afar as she strives to make it as a cop in the big bad world and Burt Reynolds is a hoot as the man who is always having to be resuscitated after nearly drowning, one time in a toilet, courtesy of Dreyfuss. It is slow moving film at first but it picks up its pace fairly quickly and you will laugh and chortle at all the ridiculous capers the four men get up to, including driving a South American Drug Lord nuts as they accidentally get in his way whilst he is trying to organize a big delivery of Class A drugs. The final action scene is hilarious when Dreyfuss and two of his companions call in their old Wise-Guy comrades who have all retired (one is even in a wheelchair and on oxygen!) to go to the rescue of their fourth friend, along with Dreyfus's daughter, his girlfriend and her stepmother. Well worth watching despite what other critics say to the contrary!

This movie was not a box office hit when it was released just a few months ago, but dreams do sometimes come true.
Starting in New Jersey in 1968, we follow the lives of four 'has-been' gangsters. Now retired and living peaceably in The Raj Mahal in Miami Beach, they attempt to make one last heist. So as not to be evicted (who wants to be homeless?) from this run-down hotel, they plot a way to save their special home. Look for the pink ostrich.
Burt Reynolds looks good as an old man and is funny like in those 'Bandit' movies. Richard Dreyfuss who won an Academy Award for his role in THE GOODBYE GIRL and was great in MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS (I loved that music!) showed his winning style. Seymour Cassel who was in Bill Murray's RUSHMORE and Dan Hedaya (Detective Jack in SHAFT), round out the foursome.
When you need a laugh, rent this one from the local video store (better yet, buy it here at Amazon.com), sit back and enjoy. If you liked GRUMPY OLD MEN, you'll love these "grandfatherly gangsters" who are not quite 'over the hill' yet. Stephen Iervolino compared this film ro 'GoodFellas' in LAUNCH. This parody is better than either or both/and in a class all its own.

Format: DVD
Mobster comedy THE CREW (2000) isn't popular with IMDb voters (currently it's 5.6 out of 10 stars),
and that's probably because of the picture's blatant ripoff of the GOODFELLAS (1990)
concept of a narrated story about friends who beconme a mob crew. Despite many exact
references, like opening with a guy in the car trunk, and such monologue thoughts as
"All we ever wanted to be was gangsters," the film quickly leaves their early days
behind and becomes the story of four buddies, survivors of the 1978 Lufthansa heist
and other smaller organized thefts, who are now well past 60. They're unhappily retired
and living in the same Miami Beach hotel, just watching the old die off and the young
coming in. Low pay jobs insult their dignity, and all the kids invading their building
bug hell out of them, so they hatch one final scheme that will both satisfy their cravings to
be Wiseguys again AND get rid of the unwanted tattooed underwear ad types who now
surround them.

They take advantage of a rare occurrence, the body of an elderly man that's found on the beach.
After shotgunning the stiff's face into mush, a note is left on the remains that threatens
more murders. But it turns out the deceased is a Drug Lord's papa, and now he's after blood!

Great cast here, starting with the "crew" of (narrator) Richard Dreyfuss, Burt Reynolds,
Dan Hedaya and Seymour Cassell, whose character mostly never talks.

Supporting players include Jennifer Tilly, Lainie Kazan, Miguel Sandoval (as the drug lord),
Jeremy Piven (as a meathead police detective), Casey Siezmaszko and José Zúñiga.
