Grumpy Old Men
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Two elderly, eccentric, next-door neighbors sustain a rancorous relationship that only a wise observer could recognize as a very special friendship. When a lonely, flamboyant, middle-aged widow moves in across the street from them, the male rivalry begins. One of the great screen duos of all time -- Oscar-winners Jack Lemmon ("Glengarry Glen Ross," "The China Syndrome," "Missing") and Walter Matthau ("Dennis the Menace," "JFK") -- reunite in this romantic comedy that examines the decades-old love-hate relationship between two neighbors and the way their lives are thrown into total upheaval when a lovely, free-spirited widow moves in across the street. Co-starring the always-seductive Ann Margret ("Carnal Knowledge"), Daryl Hannah ("Attack of the 50 Foot Woman") and Kevin Pollack ("A Few Good Men").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Just don't expect their bickering to be on the level of Neil Simon, and you won't be disappointed.
Fresh: Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon are awfully good at this sort of thing.
Fresh: If you poke through Grumpy's cheap sentimentality, you'll find a worthy picture somewhere.
Rotten: The movie is too pat and practiced to really be convincing, and the progress of Ariel's relationships with the two grumps seems dictated mostly by the needs of the screenplay.
The movie was great all around. Great acting, comedic timing, writing, and even the music punctuated the movie. This movie doesn't get old no matter how many times you watch it. The outtakes (especially in grumpier old men) are hilarious.
