Jeff Kanew
MPAA Rating:

For some reason, movies from the Eighties seem to really want to show off their decade, and this one is no exception, from the badly synthesized score to the outrageous clothes and music in the dance clubs. Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster play recently-released robbers. Their plight to not lose an identity that's been made obsolete during their jail time is mildly amusing, but there are no big laughs in this one. Their exploits get quite silly, but they still look stylish in their pinstripe suits. Charles Durning and Dana Carvey also appear, but don't make much of an impact.
