The Crew

Four Jersey youths become wizened wiseguys in South Beach faster than you can say “back story.” Richard Dreyfuss, the brains and voice-over, is about to be reunited with his long-lost daughter, who's become a police detective partly so the irony can be noted. A drug dealer she's tracking thinks someone's encroaching on his territory, and the detective thinks Dreyfuss and his cronies—Seymour Cassel, Dan Hedaya, and Burt Reynolds—may know something. Meanwhile another kind of turf war rages as young people circle like vultures waiting for the old guys' Miami apartment to become vacant. Much of the humor in this schmaltzy caper comedy gets lost in the Scorsese references, but the acting—especially Dreyfuss's ability to roll with the mood swings—is impressive if not redemptive. Michael Dinner directed a screenplay by Barry Fanaro; with Jennifer Tilly, Carrie-Anne Moss, Lainie Kazan, Miguel Sandoval, and Jeremy Piven. 88 min.
