Goofs

The central characters say (two times) that they are buying an apartment on 1st Avenue and 77th Street and when they enter the apartment (also two times) it's clearly off Amsterdam Avenue on Cathedral Parkway, which is around 110th Street in West Harlem/Morningside Heights - more than 2 miles from where they are supposed to be. These two neighborhoods don't look alike at all. See more »

Old time contemporary drama
3 June 2016 | by ckdos2See all my reviews

This film is about two old fuddy-duddies driving each other marriage crazy after all these years. No bombs, no murders, no guts, no hot disgusting senior sex or fumbling trysts, just good ol' times at the end of their lives while still hitting on contemporary racial, social and political issues.

To all you youngsters or wannabes who hated this movie because of no porno, no graphic violence or sensational blood lusting, then just go enlist in the army and get what you rally want first hand. Good luck.

Also a great subplot with their only child, Dorothy, their dog. These two oldsters still got what it takes after all these years. Congrats to you both.
