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.

While it won't come close to my top 10 best list for 1993, it will be right up there among the pictures that I had the most fun watching.

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.
