Tough Guys Review


Very Good
Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas are retired train robbers -- deeply retired, as in nursing home-retired) -- and they long to rid themselves of the gruel at mealtimes and menial jobs they're suffering through. So they do what comes naturally, rob a train, even if it is 1986. At its funniest when the heroes face the horrors of modern life, Tough Guys is a wink and a nod to two great actors with a legendary body of work between them. That they can make fun of themselves makes for a rewarding, if clumsy, experience.
