Rating: 1.5/4 -- The Crew is all contrivance and we don't believe a minute of it. Full Review

As entertaining as Ovaltine, it's a lead contender for worst movie of the year.

Rating: D- -- ... the worst of American popular culture; it is a lazy, condescending, formulaic film that the filmmakers didn't even bother to finish

Is about as rewarding as late-August movies ever get.

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Once the story clicks into gear, The Crew is a lot of fun. But that doesn't happen until after the midpoint.

Product Description:

In this outrageous comedy, a group of ex-mobsters living in the Raj Mahal senior-citizen residence in South Beach, Miami are facing eviction. The residency wants a different type of senior--one who can afford to pay more--and this wild group of pals won't have it. Bobby (Richard Dreyfuss), Joey (Burt Reynolds), Mike (Dan Hedaya), and Tony (Seymour Cassel), devise a plan to strike back against their landlords, leading to a funny, frenzied string of events.

Plot Synopsis:

For a quartet of former wiseguys and lifelong friends, retirement is a degrading bore. Joey "Bats" (Burt Reynolds) is stuck working at Burger King, Bobby (Richard Dreyfuss) spends his time scouring Miami for his long-lost daughter, Tony (Seymour Cassel) is all washed up as a ladies' man, and Mike "The Brick" (Dan Hedaya) relives the glory days by sending Christmas cards to the old gang. It seems like old times when the boys run a little scam to protect their South Beach hotel from a yuppie invasion. Unfortunately, they run afoul of a drug kingpin in the process, and he soon comes looking for revenge. The result is a farcical entertainment, but also a case for the dignity and ability of the aged. Director Michael Dinner mines comedy from every vein--the mafia, old age, Jews and Hispanics--but relies on his four great, veteran principals to provide the best laughs and the pathos, as well. Bobby's personal story is the most fleshed-out, and Dreyfuss keeps the action moving, delivering the wry voiceover he perfected in STAND BY ME.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: August 25, 2000
  • Filmed on location in Miami, Florida.
  • References to other mafia films abound in THE CREW, but especially to GOODFELLAS. In a flashback to 1968, the crew pulls off a heist from Lufthansa (as do the goodfellas), and a long tracking shot of the four men going in through the kitchen of a restaurant is a visual reference to a much-imitated scene from Scorcese's movie.
  • Director Michael Dinner knows his geriatric subject matter well: he wrote 104 scripts for the sitcom THE GOLDEN GIRLS.
