Grumpy Old Men (1993)


A lifelong feud between two neighbors since childhood only gets worse when a new female neighbor moves across the street. (IMDb)
Lemmon and Matthau have good chemistry, but the titular schtick gets, well, old pretty quickly, and kind of weird when it gets intense and you’re not sure if you should laugh or not (see Max going crazy at the ice fishing spot). Meanwhile, the romance plot is silly (Ann-Margret overacts) and the ending is terrible (where’s the comedy in her actually choosing one of them? And how was the other just A-okay with it?). Also, I’ve never hated a soundtrack more (“I’m Too Sexy” made it automatic).
5.5/10 (Poor)
