Starring an all star cast of a-list actors and actresses including Ann-Margret and Ossie Davis as well as the incomparable Burgess Meredith in his memorable role as Grandpa Gustafson this film does not disappoint on so many levels, The Movies that Jack Lemmon & Walter Matthau have paired up in are so good in their timing you could say their chemistry is to a tee. While some may nitpick that it isn’t up to snuff with a Billy Wilder or Neil Simon movie and problems arise when it veers down the path of drama, you will find the comedy will more than make up for that faux-pas. Definitely a MUST WATCH
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
