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")

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Grumpy Old Men's stars are better than the material they're given -- but their comedic chemistry is so strong that whenever they share the screen, it hardly matters.
So-so comedy with insults, sexual humor. No kid appeal.
