Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat


Grumpy Old Men
Directed by Dan Petrie
Warner Home Video 12/93 DVD/VHS Feature Film
PG-13 - some sexual references

This film mines the angel connection which is presently in vogue by having Ariel (Ann-Margret) appear as a new neighbor in a small Minnesota town where John (Jack Lemmon) and Max (Walter Matthau) are locked in a feud. In this comedy directed by Dan Petrie (Mystic Pizza), Ariel challenges both men to take more risks and to savor life's pleasures. At first the old timers compete for her affection, but she knows which one is destined to receive her angelic ministrations. Don't miss the comic bits in the closing credits which alone are worth the price of the ticket.
