The appeal of Lunch might be limited to Hollywood-nostalgia buffs, but they will be enthralled not only by the stories told, but also how they're told. These guys are still some of the sharpest wits in town.
There's not much to the movie, in which we watch the participants crack jokes and complain about their in-laws over corned beef.
