Geezers in love
After a hiatus of over a decade Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau came gloriously back in parts to suit their senior citizen status in Grumpy Old Men. They may move a little slower, but their comic timing hasn’t slowed up one bit.
The setting is a small town in Minnesota where these two old neighbors and widowers have this rivalry going back for years. Next to the ice fishing which they and apparently everyone else enjoys during the winter, their favorite pastime is cracking wise and playing jokes to one up the other. One thing that has slowed up is their libidos.
But that’s about to change when Ann-Margret moves across the street. The sight of a pretty woman right on the block is all these two old geezers need to get into action.
As for Ann-Margret she’s a free spirit of sorts who’s flattered with the attention. Matthau has another friend in high places, his son Kevin Pollak is elected mayor of their town. Lemmon has a daughter played by Darryl Hannah and a grandson and she’s married to Christopher McDonald, but they’re estranged. The kids like each other and both of their fathers.
Lemmon also has tax problems, he owes some big bucks to the IRS and the villain in Grumpy Old Men is tax man, a most officious Buck Henry. The IRS is an agency everyone hates because it’s the only place where you really are guilty until proved innocent in the USA. What happens to Lemmon is all too true. I myself could tell you stories of the IRS problems I’ve had through no fault of my own. I never owed as much as Lemmon did however and all due to an accounting error while Lemmon was filing jointly with his wife when she was still alive over a decade earlier. Some eager beaver auditor at IRS caught it and the interest and penalties compounded have him ready to lose his house.
I also have to note the presence of another pair of old geezers in the cast, Ossie Davis and Burgess Meredith. Davis owns a convenience store and in the opinion of Lemmon charges outrageously for bait during the ice fishing season. And Meredith is Lemmon’s nonagenarian father who is past the age of caring what anyone thinks of him or his opinions.
Grumpy Old Men is a wonderful film for the elderly. Now that I’m at the age of Lemmon’s and Matthau’s character, I can enjoy this now more than ever. For Geezers of all ages.
A Real Comedy with enough of everything
Contains Spoiler Grumpy old men passes as a funny, feel good comedy, and the truth is that it really is a feel good comedy. 2 old men John Gustafason (Jack Lemmon), and Max Goldman (Walter Matthau)are neighbors and for the most part get along and love to get each other mad, especially over women. Arguments between them range from fishing to backpain and to most of all women. Battle comes to war for the old men when an attractive widow played by Ann Margret moves into the neighborhood, both seek the womens love but she only chooses one. the movie blends well with romantic and feel good things and also with really funny stuff, i consider this movie a classic. Both old men feud over the women until she chooses john and not max, and when john has a heart attack there is no hard feeling between them at all. If you just want to enjoy a all out fun movie just pick this up.
