Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

Audiences expecting the earlier film's potty-mouthed swearing; jokes about aging, sex and genitals; and a barrage-like Insult-O-Rama will not be disappointed. The story is corny and predictable; the characters are thin; logic and real emotion are nowhere to be found. But Sophia Loren is stunning and the amiable, adorable Lemmon-Matthau duet is never entirely tiresome. Kids -- of all ages -- will most likely have no interest in the tired antics and sexual preoccupation of these cartoon senior citizens.
