Farmer & Chase ★★ 1996 (R)

It's always nice to see an old pro like Gazzara but it's a shame it couldn't have been in something less predictable. Farmer's (Gazzara) a holdup man who's been working with partner Ollie (Jones) for 20 years. But when Ollie's killed, Farmer, who wants to pull one last job before retiring, makes the mistake of teaming up with his pacifist son Chase (Field). And then Chase involves his new gal pal Hillary (Boyle) in on the scheme. Dumb move, dumb movie. 97m/C VHS . Ben Gazzara, Todd Field, Lara Flynn Boyle, Steven Anthony Jones, Ron Kaell, David Booth; D: Michael Seitzman; W: Michael Seitzman; C: Michael Maley; M: Tony Saunders.
