Editorial Reviews

Eighty-one-year-old Nat Moyer (Walter Matthau) is a compulsive and fanciful talker, a feisty philosopher, and a troublemaker given to assuming personalities. His daily companion on a bench in New York's Central Park is Midge Carter (Ossie Davis), a half-blind apartment superintendent. Midge's approach to life is realistic and down-to-earth, making him the perfect foil for Nat. With vaudevillian flair, these appealing oldsters outrageously take on the world and its multiple threats - drug dealers and muggers, enlightened children, force retirement, and the specter of the old folk's home. Also features Amy Irving, Craig T. Nelson and Martha Plimpton.

This movie manages to make you laugh and touch you deeply as many times as you won't think is possible during the two hours. Is truth always best? Can you still be romantic and feel deeply when you are old? How do you choose to see the world? You will be asking yourself all these questions and might be surprised at the answers.

We couldn't stop laughing! Two old codgers sitting on a park bench getting stoned...laughs are sure to follow. Tackles some big issues, too, although true to life, no big solutions are found. Aging, the homeless, drugs, violence. All this and more can be seen through the witty eyes of Walter Matheau and Ossie Davis. I'm buying this video so that I can watch it again and again!

This film is about weaving tales and marking passages, unlikely friendships, courage in the face of age and frailty and the ordinary, common defeats just being alive entails. It's about truths which, although not strictly true, ought to be, about some of the frustrating faces of love and obligation and about savoring life even when it's becoming increasingly difficult to cope with.

Octogenarians Walter Matthau and Ossie Davis team up to face a variety of problems ranging from cataracts and glaucoma, brittle bones, poverty and growing dependence, to a Central Park thug, a smarmy "communications" agent assigned to oust Davis from his job and his home and finally, a thoroughly nasty drug dealer who threatens a young girl's life. It's a weird sort of feel-good film because nothing really works out exactly as planned and yet, one is left with the notion that all is basically well (if slightly goofy).

Very much worth the purchase. I'll be watching this over and over.

This is a very good movie, one that you can watch many times and still feel good about it. The story is both funny and at times sad. Actors Matthau and Davis are brilliant in thier roles as two seniors holding thier own.

Nat Moyer(Walter Matthau)is a compulsive talker, philosopher, and troublemaker who pretends he is someone else. His daily companion on a bench in Central Park is Midge Carter(Ossie Davis)who is a halfblind superintendent in an apartment house; Midge's view of life is realistic and down-to-earth as opposed to Nat's assuption of alternate personalities. These two old men, in true vaudevillian fashion, take on the world and its threats - drug dealers,muggers,forced retirement, and worst of all, the spectre of the old folk's home. You will enjoy their repartie.

They passed this movie in cable and I just saw it for Mr.Matthau but when I finished watching it I was amazed how great this movie is,I don't even know if it did it to the theaters here in Mexico...I think Alex Lora of a great group called El Tri appears.A touching story and one of the greatest movies ever made.Buy it!

What a lovely way for two superb actors to top off long, distinguished careers. These talented veterans carry the whole movie, and its unlikey plot turns, on their backs like Atlas supporting an unwieldy world.

The DVD has no extras. I can ony hope the producers saved all the out-takes and break-ups that MUST have occured during the making of this movie.

There are actually THREE stars of this movie. Central Park is the unbilled third star. I've never seen it looking more beautiful.

I will watch movie over and over.

Funniest and stark movie ever made about the joys and pains of aging, in a changing society and world.

Only Walter Matthau and Ossie Davis could have pulled off credibly, with drama, danger and humor, better than it was on the Broadway Stage.

It is about oui futures and presents, even the past.

Where do we come from? What and who are we?
