Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau team-up for the hilarious screwball comedy Grumpy Old Men. The story follows two life-long rivals and neighbors who take their juvenile games and pranks to a new level to compete for a beautiful, free-spirited woman who moves in down the street from them. Lemmon and Matthau are incredibly funny, and are backed by a strong supporting cast; including Ann-Margret, Burgess Meredith, and Daryl Hannah. And while the comedy is a lot of fun, there also a lot of heart; with a touching message about the bonds of friendship and making the most out of life. Terrifically entertaining, Grumpy Old Men delivers a lot of laughs.

Good chemistry and solid laughs, between leads Lemmon and Matthau, make this predictable comedy a harmless viewing. Honorable nod to Burgess Meredith for his comedic supporting role.

I hadn't seen this one in years and found it really held-up for me. It's quite funny and Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are great together. Burgess Meredith is also really funny in it. Just a good enjoyable comedy.

Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau star in the holiday comedy Grumpy Old Men. The two characters have been friends since 10, but eventually became rivals after they both fought over the same woman. History is ready to repeat it self with a new bombshell Ariel (Ann-Margret) moves across the street. Grumpy Old Men is not without flaws, and includes a questionable timeline of events, but was a decent lighthearted comedy with some character.

Hilarious, charming and heartfelt, Grumpy Old Men shines brightly as an enjoyable holiday comedy that delivers a delightfully funny narrative anchored by two terrific performances from Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

Old men who are rival neighbors compete for the affections of a new neighbor who is a hot Ann Margaret. This comedy is a one note gimmick comedy but it succeeds with funny scenes and a bit of truthfulness.

Can't believe it's been 26 years (2016) since this movie was made. Jack Lemmon (the grest race) is awesome!

Not nowhere near as funny as "The Old Couple" which also stars Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau but it makes you chuckle.

Lemmon and Matthau bring their magic to the big screen once more and their charisma carries the film through a pretty threadbare script

Pure comedic magic! Impossible to out duel the hilarious duo of Matthau & Lemon. Sharp writing and memorable moments galore! It will make you laugh like you've never laughed before!!

It's the odd couple with a little extra old time drama.

This senior citizens rom-com is all about the good heart and the theme of friendship. (B+)

About this good, Grumpy Old Men is entertaining for it's leads who obviously have a history in making films with one another and with each other. The first half is all laughs and the second is the resonating message hidden behind the big brick wall. Good watch. Burgess Meredith was my favorite part of the whole movie.
