Critic Reviews for Grumpy Old Men
Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon are awfully good at this sort of thing.
Just don't expect their bickering to be on the level of Neil Simon, and you won't be disappointed.
The movie is too pat and practiced to really be convincing, and the progress of Ariel's relationships with the two grumps seems dictated mostly by the needs of the screenplay.
If you poke through Grumpy's cheap sentimentality, you'll find a worthy picture somewhere.
Audience Reviews for Grumpy Old Men
Not the best film of the duo Matthau and Lemmon, but, Grumpy Old Men still a funny and charismatic movie about love, life, family, friends and death in old age.
An instant classic! This comedy has all the right timing and Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau make the funniest pair. Don't skip the end credits either, Burgess Meredith has some of the funniest one-liners I've ever heard!
Just a really funny movie showcasing one of the best duos in comedy. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are as good together 30 years after their first onscreen partnering. While this isn't as well written or as fresh as The Odd Couple, it's such an untapped market. Squabbling old men is somehow one of the most entertaining things to watch. This also has so much heart and honesty thrown in that you simply can't resist falling in love with the characters.
