    It's very interesting to see Lemmon direct for the first and only time and decide to go with Matthau rather than an aged actor. Matthau of course always looked old but here he sometimes hits the mark and other times doesn't. I wonder if the lukewarm result prompted Lemmon not to direct anything else.

    Touching film about an aging widower (Walter Matthau) whose contentious relationship with his family won't dampen his love for his infant grandson, or stop him from striking up a friendship with a pregnant, unwed teenage girl for whom he becomes a surrogate grandfather. Jack Lemmon's only film as a director may be a bit scattershot, but with the aid of a gorgeous Marvin Hamlisch score, he goes straight for the heart. Charming in every way.
