The title sounds like a drab “Marigold Hotel” snoozer, but this comedy is a start-to-finish rocket-speed riot. Allan (droll Robert Gustafsson) vanishes from his old codgers’ home on the day of his centenary, causing a local tizzy. It also triggers an international criminal conniption fit when he makes off with millions in drug money. While thugs try to track him down, he reminisces about his youth and his undying love of explosives, which still makes him a hard guy to capture. Alan Ford, who played the iconic Mr. Big-type gangster in Guy Ritchie’s “Snatch,” is hilariously identical here, fuming at the knuckleheaded henchmen who can’t catch the slow-moving Allan. (114 min.)
