Haven't we all been here several times before?
10 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I know you know the drill by now, One nice. charismatic fellow is the "go to" guy at the old folks home. All the ladies want to date him and all the single guys want to be him. Life is good and going his way until a new comer comes out of nowhere to upset his happy little paradise and as a result he's yesterday's news. As a result the next 1hr & fifteen minutes are spent with our former #1 fellow trying in vain to prove he's still #1. Simply put, this movie isn't funny at all, nope not in the least. Oh it'll make you smile here and there but that's about it. The only thing this movie has going for it is star power but even then the lines are weak and non responsive at best. My friend and I didn't laugh at all during the movie. A couple sitting near us got up and walked out roughly halfway through. Another couple was heard saying "well that was a horrible movie" just as we walked by to leave. The more I thought about it no one else laughed at all during the entire movie either, not even once. Everything seemed so formulaic and exceedingly predictable and that's because it painfully is. Oh did I mention the once two adversaries eventually come to like one another towards the end of the film, yeah well they do, no surprise there. Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones and Renee Rouseau are all great actors and yet even they can't make this film funny. My guess is its the writing and script as it don't give them any room to work with. As far as I'm concerned this movie really should've had the direct to DVD release treatment, thus I'm only giving it 2 stars and I honestly feel I'm being far too kind in doing even that. Watch something else instead, you've been warned!
