By Suzzane Marshall from the September 2014 Edition
Director: Rob Reiner
Starring: Michael Douglas, Diane Keaton
“A self- absorbed realtor enlists the help of his neighbor when he’s suddenly left in charge of the granddaughter he never knew existed until his estranged son drops her off at his home.”
Finally, a movie produced to entertain the ‘baby-boomers’ or ‘we’ mature audiences. It’s great for everyone too but more the kind of relatable movie that I think most of my crowd enjoys. You can’t really go wrong with Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton especially when they’re directed by Rob Reiner.
So we thoroughly enjoyed this funny and touching story with its twist on life as we age, while also demonstrating that some things never change.
The IMDB ratings have given this movie a 5.5/10 based on very few ratings of 942. Either it is being seen by a wide audience or no one is bothering to vote. But I would give it a rating of 7/10 just for sheer enjoyment, production value and a great break from Sci-fi and special effects movies.
