Crew, The

Rated 1.0 Four former small-time mobsters (Richard Dreyfuss, Burt Reynolds, Dan Hedaya, Seymour Cassel), now retired in Florida, fake a murder to scare their inconvenient neighbors. Unfortunately, the unidentified corpse they use turns out to be the father of a South American drug lord; worse yet, the bimbo squeeze of one of them (Jennifer Tilly) now wants them to whack her stepmother (Lainie Kazan). That’s about as much sense as you can make of Barry Fanaro’s script, which careens from contrivance to cliché in a desperate attempt to be wacky. The four stars make no headway against the script and Michael Dinner’s uninspired direction. Dreyfuss’ voice-over narration smacks of a last-minute effort to make sense of things, while Carrie-Anne Moss and Jeremy Piven play squabbling Miami detectives.
