Harry Doyle (Lancaster) and Archie Lang (Douglas) are two old-time train robbers, who held up a train in 1956 and have been incarcerated for thirty years. After serving their time, they are released from jail and have to adjust to a new life of freedom. Harry and Archie realize that they still have the pizzazz when, picking up their prison checks at a bank, they foil a robbery attempt. Archie, who spent his prison time pumping himself up, easily picks up a 20-year-old aerobics instructor. Harry, on the other hand, has to waste away his days in a nursing home. They both have festering resentments -- Archie for having to endure a humiliating job as a busboy; Harry for having to endure patronizing attitudes toward senior citizens. The two old pals finally go back to what they know best. After successfully robbing an armored car, they decide to rob the same train that they robbed thirty years ago.

Mark D (au) wrote: Love NWR. great director. This is a good little thriller, that has obvious influences, such as Kubrick and plenty of Lynch. Kinda similar to 'Memento' with 2 obvious open ended endings left to your own interpretation. Worth seeing
Brandon R (ag) wrote: Yeah it's not a great horror film if you want to be scared but it has some laughs and has that late 90's feel that makes it fun. Plus it's a who's who of 90's stars.
Red L (ru) wrote: A feel-good movie with Tommy Lee Jones acting as a father figure to five ditzy cheerleaders. Not his best effort.
Naomi B (kr) wrote: Enjoyed it, well done. Although certain parts were not completely believable, it was, for the better part of it, realistic and enjoyable.
Tatsuhito K (ru) wrote: A feel-good, heartwarming film full of laughs and touching moments. The performances are top-notch and Cameron Crowe's writing and direction are on-point, Jerry Maguire is a romantic comedy that makes you fall in love with its likable and realistic characters. Nothing in this film feels fake or forced. Brilliant!
Logan M (ru) wrote: This could've been a great film if Paltrow weren't casted. Anthony Hopkins and the prince of Persia himself were solid and like able. Paltrow, whom I find physically repulsive, was an akward love interest for gylenhaal, seeing as she's 8 years his senior and at the time of the film, looked more like 15 years his elder. Then she goes into her mopey craziness trying to look cinematically haggard, but comes off more as a discarded, shapeless sponge in sweatpants. You feel no compassion for her character which is a pivotal role for the films emotional platform. You just wonder if they found the greatest actor of all time, and one of the hottest actors at the moment, why did they settle for a female who was neither on par with their ability or beauty?
