Sex, Romance & Nudity

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has sexual content, mild violence, profanity, and mature themes. It isn't for preteens and young teens, who won't have much interest in seeing it anyway. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
If a cross between Grumpy Old Men and Goodfellas sounds like your cup of prune juice, then cinch up your girdle and head for the video store. But don't expect more than a few cursory laughs--expect a forgettable made-for-TV-like production. The big disappointment here isn't Richard Dreyfuss, or even the dull-witted script. The real disappointment here is gracefully aging Burt Reynolds, who surprised moviegoers in the '90s with some of the most interesting and challenging roles of his career. This movie is a waste of his talents. And, Carrie-Anne Moss' character, like Jennifer Tilly's, fails at even the most rudimentary pleas for sympathy or understanding.
But is there a worthwhile statement buried here about wisdom and maturity outshining impetuous youth? Nah. As one young viewer put it, "I guess it really is horrible to get old." At its most thought-provoking, the story is about how mayhem, thievery, and a little debauchery rejuvenate a few old men. Take Dreyfuss's overused catchphrase to heart and "Fuhgeddaboudit."
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
