Product Description

Welcome to Sunrise Village, a little piece of trailer park heaven outside Phoenix, AZ. Here, retired war vets Sam (Burt Reynolds), Carl (Robert Loggia) and Eddie (Charles Durning) are enjoying their "Golden Years" while vying for the attentions of their sexy neighbor Christine (Raquel Welch). Into this idyllic setting drops wiseguy Angelo Nitti who, in exchange for ratting out the Mob, is rechristened "John Brandin" by the Witness Protection Program. Unfortunately, he "forgets" to mention that he has stolen over $4 million from the Syndicate, and when Sam, Carl and Eddie stumble upon Nitti's hidden stash of cash, the hapless trio thinks their ship has finally come in. Now both the Mafia and the Feds are coming to town looking to take them all down!

Believe it or not...this is a comedy for retired seniors. It is doubtful that any other age group would appreciate, yet alone actually get it! Great casting, acceptable story line...what we'd all like to see happen as seniors enter their mediocre period. Rachel is a testament to the wonders of plastic surgery and great eye candy, while the men give us a rundown on the average life in retirement. There really is a bright side to retirement...of course 'a couple of hundred thou doesn't hurt, either!'

Ok, this isn't the greatest movie ever made. It isn't the worst movie ever made. Somewhere in the middle is "Forget About It". I am biased, as some of the film was shot at the airport where I worked (except for the terminal and airline the movie was shot at Mesa Falcon Field).
The plot line is thin, the acting would do a ham proud, but it is entertaining and funny. Odd part is that a couple of swear words were edited out, but there is a scene in a "adult" bar that wasn't. So not for young children.
Have some popcorn, a soda and enjoy the movie

I really wanted to love this movie, and it looked so promising on the surface. Unfortunately, when you take a top-notch cast like this one and force them to deliver poorly written dialogue, then provide editing with all of the polish of a high school AV club project, the final product isn't what you would expect from a project with this kind of (albeit aging) star power. It plays out like a lackluster after-school special from 1985.

Add a storyline that's a haphazard patchwork quilt of other plots that have been done to death, hold them together with bubble gum instead of thread, and you get this movie. Things just don't flow smoothly. It has it's moments, and it's not the worst thing in the world, but I can't say that I'd recommend it to a friend or consider watching it again. It's just sad to see something so average come from a cast with so much talent and experience.

My favorite example of the bad dialogue, though you really have to see it in the movie to fully appreciate how awkward it sounds:

Becky: "I am close to 18. I don't have to listen to anyone."

Sam: "Close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades. Besides, you ain't 18 yet." (redundant much?)

Becky "Close enough. (rides off on her bike) Get a life!"

There are many other examples, but that one is permenantly stuck in my head.

It was a cute story about 3 older men one of which is a former marine who is taking care of his niece and they all live in a retirement village. Then a wiseguy moves in. Unbeknowns to them a wisegirl already lives in their community. The wise guy kept a secret from his agents at the us marshal's office. He kept $4,000,000 in cash. Now everyone wants a piece of him even the dirty agents.

A lineup of a bunch of one-time big stars. Must have been doing one of their friends kids a favor. It was like a high school kid wrote the script. There was no rhythm or timing of the scenes. Made the really bad dialog even worse. Didn't finish watching it.

This movie is bad - I can only assume Reynolds, Welch et al needed the acting exposure, while the seasoned actors performed well, the script stunk and the plot had more holes than a a block of Swiss cheese. The performers playing the roles of the FBI agents could easily have been recruited from a porn set, their acting was attrocious. Don't waste your time.

I am not a critic and all I have is my opinion. I thought this movie was very excellent. It seems when Burt and Raquel get together something special happens. And with 4 other stars of equal caliber to enhance Burt and Raquel's performance, nothing but fun, laughter and the shennanigans of three retired kids makes this movie great. While this movie is funny it is skillfully put together to make a good story. I will enjoy watching it over and over.

I'm giving it 2 stars only out of respect for Burt Reynolds and the rest of a pretty impressive cast. Otherwise, I'm sorry to say, "Forget about it". After reconsideration, I'm raising it to 3 stars because I did manage to watch the entire movie, so it must have held my interest.
