Us Rating: ***

There is something irresistible about this cheeky crime flick, a surprise hit that earned $90 million last fall and a Golden Globe nomination for best comedy. In the caper, a group of retired (and "extremely dangerous") CIA agents -- played with gusto by Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren -- reunites to stop an assassin. The plot is hopelessly convoluted, but the brisk pace and winkwink jokes make it sizzle. Of course, the wily and highly skilled cast helps too. (Summit Entertainment, $29)
