    Often livens up stale material with disarming loopiness and zest.

    No classic, but two hours well-spent nonetheless.
  5. 58
    Drowns in flat, clumsy and obvious direction.
  6. 50
    Amiable, sporadically amusing farce.

    Dogged allegiance to blandness.

    Much better than you'd expect, largely thanks to an extremely game cast.
  9. 50
    It's sunny and cheerful without coming off as too saccharine.
  10. For the large-type crowd, one that prefers to have its "dirty" clean and silly.

    A pleasant surprise that The Crew offers up the charms it does.
  12. Some of it is, I'll admit, pretty funny.

    The sentimentality is gently but firmly restrained in a potentially treacly subplot.

    The acting--especially Dreyfuss's ability to roll with the mood swings--is impressive if not redemptive.
  15. 38
    The Crew is all contrivance and we don't believe a minute of it.
  16. The "Golden Girls" with gats.

    Fuhgeddaboutit.
  18. So mild, so benign, its humiliation-to-vindication are so predictable and its old-folks jokes so feeble.
  19. Seems it's never going to reach liftoff.
  20. 25
    Fanaro's script never really hones in on the concept's potential.
  21. Each man's shtick swells into a frenzy of overacting.
  22. Most folks are just plain bored -- and I mean cross-eyed, wall-climbing, deep-down-to-the-molecular-level bored -- with this ubiquitous Endearing Wiseguys school of movie comedy.
  23. 20
    There are moments that suggest the comedy that could have been.

    The humor is even more geriatric than the cast.
  25. When a burning rat is the funniest thing in your movie, I think you're in big trouble, even in Miami.
