Friends, the new movie “Going In Style” opens April 7th and I, for one, can’t wait to see it. It’s a comedy starring some of the greats: Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, and is directed by one of my favorites, Zach Braff.
The movie is about three retiree buddies who go rogue and decide to rob a bank when their retirement funds are eviscerated as a corporate casualty, with ensuing hijinks.
Just check out the trailer below to see what I mean.
The visual of practicing a “dry run” robbery at the grocery store using a motorized wheelchair grocery cart (or as my son calls them, “granny carts”) will forever be hilarious to me. As will the scene where Alan Arkin stops running from the police because he’s “just tired”. I feel that business.
I also love the idea of three pretty straitlaced retired buddies just hanging out at breakfast together, planning how they’re going to take their fate into their own hands over toast and cups of coffee. It reinforces my personal fantasy of being an unconventional old lady, living outside of the stereotypes everyone else might have for me. I’ll definitely be at diners hanging out with my buddies, making big plans for our future, much like the guys in “Going In Style” but
slightly less definitely less illegal than robbing a bank.
Warner Bros. Pictures wants you to go see “Going In Style”, as do I. So, they’re giving one of you a $100 gift card to go see the new movie with your own buddies. Here are the giveaway details:
