Bored to death with spending his time sitting on a park bench feeding pigeons all day, Joe (Burns) decides that he and his friends need a little excitement in their lives. So, he talks his cronies Al (Carney) and Willie (Strasberg) into holding up a bank with him. The three 70-something-year-olds figure that they
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits a nicely saturated color scheme with accurate fleshtones, warm hues, and deep blacks. Only occasionally do fleshtones appear a bit reddish.

The source element is revealing of a few flecks of dirt and occasional scratches. Overall, this picture is surprisingly pleasing for the age of the film. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #83 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
