is like a double romantic comedy, with a grandfather and grandson going after a grandmother and granddaughter at the same time. However, unlike most romantic comedies, the girls aren't desperate romantics, but rather one up the guys at the love game. All of the actors are wonderful. Andy Griffith is absolutely charming as the "player" grandfather. The ending has a twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan. Just a brief warning: there is a lot of talk about sex and scenes insinuating it, especially between the elderly, which can get kind of nasty. It's funny, but sometimes goes a bit too far.
