A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Going in Style

I admire this film's attempt to blend crime, comedy, and genuine emotion (that worked out well for "Hunting Elephants"). Sadly, it proves unremarkable in all those regards. The jokes are tired and predictable, when they're not merely shoehorned to punch-up a dull scene. Also, the heartfelt moments are played too seriously, clashing with the overall broad humor of the rest of the film. Noble, but it's been done better
