I don&#39;t know why, but I recently had Grumpy Old Men stuck in my head, Isaw it when I was 8 years old with my grandparents, but I figured thatI should watch it again before I would comment on it, since youropinion changes when you grow up. So, I rented both Grumpy Old Men andGrumpier Old Men and I was excited to see a decent rating on IMDb, andI love Walter Matthau, so this was a film to look forward too. Well, Ifinished it this morning and I have to say that it had it&#39;s good laughsalong with a very heart warming story for the holidays.<br><br>John and Max are two former friends turned enemies and have beenfeuding for a long time, we don&#39;t really know why at the beginning ofthe film. When they see a new neighbor moving in on the street, a veryattractive older woman named Ariel. Now the boys have something new tofight over and are competing for her love. But it almost drives themcrazy how much they keep playing tricks on each other and can theyrealize that it&#39;s finally time to grow up and act their ages or willthey stay as grumpy old men? <br><br>This was a very charming and lovely movie that could melt anyone&#39;sheart and make them laugh at the same time. I really do miss thecomedies like this since a lot of films are more aimed for a youngergeneration, I may be 21, but I need the grown up comedies just as wellas the one&#39;s for today, we need a balance, you know? But I would highlyrecommend Grumpy Old Men for a little laugh and a good film to watchfor an afternoon.<br><br>7/10

The opening credits in this film roll to the tune of &quot;Heat Wave&quot;, and itwasduringa recent heat wave that I dusted off my well-worn copy of &quot;Grumpy Old Men&quot;andsettled in to once again watch the first of four movies that made up the&quot;secondcoming&quot; of the Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau team. To those who have not yetseen the movie, (yes, there may be a few) it was set (and filmed) in snowyMinnesota, which give the film an authentic small town feel that thetalented setdesigners of Hollywood would be hard pressed to duplicate. From the stars'firstlines in the film (&quot;'Morning ****head&quot;, &quot;Hello moron&quot;) we know what toexpect,and the movie doesn't disappoint us. The verbal sparring between Max andJohn continues non-stop through 100+ laugh filled minutes. Both the plotandthe ending are not quite believable, but who really cares? For those whowantreality, there are many depressing films out there, not to mention thenews-papers and CNN.I have never read if all the cast members were the first choices for theparts, butevery one of the cast fits their roles perfectly. Ann-Margret has evolvedfrom herdancing, grinding &quot;sexpot&quot; image in the 60's to a wonderful, naturalactress.Burgess Meredith....what can I say? He's perfect as John's father, acrusty,lovable old man. The interplay between Jack and Burgess is so easy, andwhynot? Who better to play a 94 year old than the 80+ year oldMeredith.While Burgess is lovable, Daryl Hannah is lovely. As John's daughterMelanie, Ihave never seen her look more beautiful and heart-melting as she does inthispicture. Ozzie Davis, Kevin Pollak, and Buck Henry round out the cast, andbring their many talents to the picture.While much has been written about the comedy, very little is said about therealistic side of &quot;Grumpy Old Men&quot;. There are a few fleeting scenes thatrevealthe heartache and loneliness of growing old. And John's dealings with theI.R.S. in the movie, while hilarious, points out what can happen when themachine-like IRS process starts to roll over an individual not caring aboutthehuman-real life side of the situation.The only &quot;downer&quot; for me in again watching this movie is the knowlege thatthestring is over. Walter and Jack and Burgess are gone. I can't watch thismoviewithout feeling just a tinge of sorrow. When most actors their age passon,wefeel sorrow, and then watch their classics from decades ago. With WalterandJack the best was yet to come. I have read elsewhere that scripts were intheworks for &quot;Grumpy Old Men 3&quot; and &quot;Odd Couple 3&quot;. Who knows how manymore successful films this brilliant team could have made together. Idoubtif theformula for their success would have grown stale, because both Walter andJack no longer acted....their roles where just an extension of themselves.<br><br>Whether it be Grumpy or Grumpier Old Men, &quot;Odd Couple II&quot;, or &quot;Out to Sea&quot;wewere as much visiting with old friends as we were watching a movie. Oldfriendsget more endearing with age, and we would have never tired of new visitsfromthem, no matter what the role.Burgess, Jack, and Walter.....wherever you are...thanks for the laughsyou'vegiven us over the years. You made us feel good, which is the best epitaphanyone could wish for.

It is sad to watch this wonderful film and realize that most of theactors in it are dead. Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Burgess Meredith,Ozzie Davis...all fine men whose loss to movie goers is felt- at leastby this one. Ann-Margret, Darryl Hannah, Kevin Pollak, while stillamong us, are also perfect for their parts.<br><br>Every time I watch &quot;Grumpy Old Men&quot; I sense the camaraderie and fun thecast and crew must have had in making it. It is a family reunion, andthe audience is the more fortunate for being invited. <br><br>Thank you all for braving the Minnesota winter to remind us of snowangels and tea tree oil; of old friends and Thanksgivings shared; ofwarmth in the deepest cold.
