A wheezier replay of the 1993 hit geezer romp Grumpy Old Men.
Insults and sexual innuendo dominate routine comedy sequel.
Moderately successful sequel. Lemmon and Matthau always a great team to watch.
Not as good as the first, but it's seldom less than amusing.
Nowhere near as funny as the first film. Just a stale, tired rehash.
The heart of the first one is replaced by extra fart jokes.
A good sequel to a great classic! Once again Walter Matthau has the best one-liners!
"Grumpy Old Men" has been one of my favorite comedy movies since I first saw it when it came out. Therefore, I couldn't wait to see "Grumpier Old Men," the sequel. It's pretty much just like the first one except with more laughs and some new faces. In this one, Max (Walter Matthau) has a son (Kevin Pollak) and John (Jack Lemmon) has a daughter (Daryl Hannah). Max's son and John's daughter are supposed to be getting married soon. Ann Margaret returns in this one and another new person is Sophia Loren along with her Italian mom. Best of all, Grandpa Gustafson returns with his hilarious one-liners in this sequel.
"Grumpier Old Men" is even funnier than the first movie was, and the new people fit in with the original cast perfectly. Everybody does a great job of acting. There's a lot of parts in the movie that are unforgettable once you see them such as when Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon temporarily turn their backs on one another and start playing hilarious pranks on each other, and the fight with the huge catfish. To top it all off, after the movie is over, it shows a lot of outtakes from the film, mainly with Grandpa Gustafson and they're just as hilarious as the movie itself was.
If you liked the first movie or if you like comedy movies where the laughs never stop, I recommend getting "Grumpier Old Men." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. Awesome sequel...can't beat Lemmon and Matthau as a duo...R.I.P.
The laughs and the story aren't QUITE as strong this time around, but it's still quite a funny and entertaining film.
The second teaming of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau as cranky, lifelong neighbours provides - surprisingly - as many chuckles and guffaws as their first outing. Once again, Burgess Meredith, as Lemmon's sex-obsessed father, gets most of the belly laughs.
