Two very funny men, an all-star cast. . .

. . .and a hideously weak plot.

My wife and I are both fans of Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau. Together, they have produced some hysterical films, most notably "Grumpy Old Men". This film, I'm sad to say, is merely a shadow of what it could have been.

The basic plot -- an elderly (yet charming) con-man tricks his recently widowed brother-in-law into taking a cruise. Enormous humor could have been derived from this basic premise -- but unfortunately, enormous humor was NOT the result. The plot was shallow and predictable, and the humor muted. While there were a few points at which I laughed, it is certainly not the comedy classic "Grumpy Old Men" was.

I can't imagine ever caring to see this film again.
