Four former made men, struggling to get by in a rundown Miami hotel, come up with a plot to drive out all of the young tenants that are slowly taking over the beach-front hotel and driving up their rent. Taking a man that was found dead on the beach, they arrange what appears to a mob hit and provide a note that says more killings are to occur. Unfortunately the old man they use turns out to be the senile father of a drug lord. The drug lord declares war on the killers of his father, thinking it was an action of his enemies. A stripper learns of the old men's involvement and threatens to squeal on them unless they kill her stepmother. Meanwhile, one man searches for his long-lost daughter, who is the investigating police officer, trying to divest herself from her crumb fellow officer and former boyfriend.Written by

Jeremy Piven stated his thoughts about sucking Carrie-Anne Moss's toes for one scene in this movie as follows: "The question I'm asked the most is 'What's it like sucking Carrie-Anne's toes?' It was tremendous. She has exquisite toes. Her feet were primed from The Matrix (1999), from a year of bouncing on them. We definitely nailed it in eight takes, and then I asked for an extra one, just in case." See more »
When two of the gang members and the ladies are kidnapped from
the retirement home, as they get in the car the weather is clear and the road is dry. However, in the next scene as they arrive at the dock the road is wet with small puddles - a clear sign that it rained between shots. See more »
There are good parts and there are bad parts in "The Crew." The good stuff is that all four geezers in the movie are consistently amusing, Jennifer Tilly has never looked better (maybe her cleavage has something to do with that), it's good to see Carrie-Anne Moss in something other than "The Matrix," and the general level of humor is funny even though we've seen it a million times. On the bad side, it's much too short to make a lasting impact, poor Jeremy Piven is stuck in a thankless role, too many jokes are aimed at the same target, and too much time passes between major gut-busters. Still, Richard Dreyfuss and Burt Reynolds get their share of laughs, even though the cleavage gets all the attention.
