Product Description

Grumpy Old Men / Grumpier Old Men (Double Feature) (BD)

The wit hits the fan as legendary screen odd couple Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau play Minnesota ice-fishing pals whose crusty friendship grows hilariously icier as the Grumpy Old Men vie for an attractive widow (Ann-Margret). Also in the cast are Daryl Hannah, Kevin Pollak, Ossie Davis and an outrageously randy Burgess Meredith. The two grab their rods to reel in another comic whopper in Grumpier Old Men. Most of the original cast returns, and Sophia Loren plays the vivacious newcomer who wants to turn the beloved bait shop into a chichi ristorante. Of course, in this part of the Land of 1000 Lakes, that means war! Enjoy.

Grumpy Old Men
Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are reunited in this popular 1993 comedy, in which the Odd Couple veterans play John and Max (respectively), a pair of elderly bachelors whose lifelong friendship is based on mutual aggravation and constant bickering. Their competitive natures kick into overdrive when the beautiful Ariel (Ann-Margret) moves into their otherwise snowbound Minnesota neighborhood. She takes a liking to John, but after a lover's spat she also gives Max a chance at romance, and the long-time buddies reach a peak of grumpy rivalry. It's a stretch to think that Ann-Margret's dating choices would be limited to a pair of grouchy codgers, but sarcastic attitude and snappy dialogue made this a surprise hit (followed by a 1995 sequel), and Burgess Meredith adds plenty of spice as Lemmon's amorous old father. Don't forget to watch the hilarious outtakes during the closing credits! --Jeff Shannon

Grumpy Old Men
The success of Grumpy Old Men made this 1995 sequel practically mandatory, and although it's not much more than a Grumpy retread, the same schtick is just as funny the second time around. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau reunited as the Minnesota neighbors who make a hobby out of mutual aggravation, but while Lemmon's married (to Ann-Margret), this time it's Matthau who's looking for love. He finds it when Sophia Loren arrives to open an Italian ristorante on the site of Jack and Walter's favorite bait shop, but only after the grumpy guys have done their best to stop the ristorante from opening. The impending wedding of Kevin Pollak (as Matthau's son) and Daryl Hannah (as Lemmon's daughter) puts love in the air, so it's not too long before Matthau and Loren are singing "That's Amore." And Burgess Meredith (in one of his final screen roles) returns as Lemmon's saucy old father, who gets all the best lines and delivers them with lusty vigor. --Jeff Shannon

I owned both of these movies on Laserdisc, long, long ago. And until this Blu Ray was released, that was the only way to see these funny movies in a WIDESCREEN transfer! I was very excited to get this Blu Ray in the mail a few days ago! The transfers look awesome! Very clean, and sharp, and, at LAST, in 16x9 WIDESCREEN.

I do agree with the reviews that I've read, stating most people are kind of upset about being able to own BOTH films for the same price, or less than, the cost paid for Grumpy Old Men on Blu Ray. I too bought the Grumpy Old Men Blu Ray, back in December. I paid $17.99 here on Amazon for it. Then a few weeks later I saw the listing, thanks to High Def Digest ([...]) and was bummed to think I bought 1 film for 17.99, when the pre-list price for BOTH was 17.99! But oh well! I am just EXTREMELY happy to see both of these great films on Blu Ray!

Now I am hoping that FOX will release Out To Sea on Blu Ray! Walter and Jack were the greatest duo in the past 30 years, and are always a joy to watch!!!

Sure this disc is missing the trailers, and there are NO special features. But, if you like the movies, BUY this Blu Ray! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

Although Warner already released Grumpy Old Men on Blu-ray last year and now are technically re-releasing it again, I am pleased that the underrated sequel, Grumpier Old Men finally received a proper widescreen transfer versus the full frame video the DVD versions have had.

The Blu-ray itself, for both films, look as good as they probably can and the audio (both sport DTS-HD Master Audio, with Grumpy has 2.0 channels and Grumpier has 5.1) for both are better than acceptable. Also, both films are on one disc but given there are no features, a 50GB Blu-ray disc easily handles them both.

If you're a fan like I am for both of these films, Warner has set a respectable SRP ($24.98 at the time of this writing) so it very well may reach the $10 mark in the not too distant future. For those who don't appreciate Warner doing this, I understand, but if you can get it on the cheap, then just think of it as getting this sequel and ignore the original (if you already own the stand alone Blu-ray).

Personally, I think it's worth it to get the widescreen transfer at long last...

I noticed a lot of angry reviews for this new dvd release because the films aren't in widescreen, and I can't say that I blame them. I bought these films on VHS years ago but didn't buy the first dvd releases of them because they weren't in, you guessed it, widescreen. I can see how really big fans of them would be upset by that. It does seem funny to me because in the past Warner Bros. has rereleased films like "A Christmas Story" and "Ace Ventura:Pet Detective" in widescreen, the latter just last week. This rerelease of the "Grumpy" films looks to me like the original dvd releases put on one disk, as the menus and special features seem to indicate so. But the back of the case clearly says fullscreen, so you can't try to sue Warners or anything like that. But one does have to wonder why, if they were going to rerelease them, they wouldn't make new menus, and release them in WIDESCREEN.

The number of reviewers complaining about aspect ratio's for DVD purchases is annoying. Amazon should be able to separate reviews for DVDs vs. reviews for blu-ray. You don't have to worry about a full screen copy on your blu ray disc!

While I'm at it.....anyone who has a high def television, GET A BLU RAY PLAYER. If you have a TV that plays 1080 and you're still buyind DVD's, you're wasting your money. That shiny new TV you purchased won't look right without signals from high def sources.

I'm amazed at how little people know about what they're buying when they get these flat screens. My uncle bought a new Plasma then hooked up to a cable box that didn't even have component connections, let alone HDMI. He called me asking why the picture on his new TV looked so bad! I got him set up...and I bought him a blu ray player for Christmas so he can cook with crisco.

I likes Jack Lemmon from a long time ago and still he is something.
He is a true comedian actor.
Also other actors were really good in this film
When I first play this DVD, I didn't know that I already watched this a long time ago.
Still liked the film.
Grumpier old men is also good.
All the actors did their job really well. And the new story is just hillarious.
Above all, feel good movie for both.
Don't be so worry about full stcreen.
They still are good movies.

I must respond to the negative comments concerning the DVD format...Are we really going to condemn 2 fine films just because they're not available in widescreen?? The back clearly states "in fullscreen", so we can't claim we were "duped". Plus, I checked my old separate collections of each film, and they were also in fullscreen--nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Just kick back and enjoy the work of 2 masterful actors who have since left us; the lovely/saucy presence of Ann-Margret (and later, Sophia Loren); plus, the scene-stealing "dirty old man" Burgess Meredith.

However, it would've been nice to have a "making of.." featurette or cast & crew interviews.
