Film Review: Script Weakens Cast, Director in ‘And So it Goes’

25 July 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “And So it Goes” can be summed up in its incredibly weak title, as just lazy hackery. In attempting to tell a story of redemption for a old white rich man, the film falls back on clichés, predictability, improbability, overdone physical comedy and stereotypes. The first-time pairing of Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, and the direction of old pro Rob Reiner, couldn’t overcome the stench of the hackneyed screenplay.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Rob Reiner’s ability to recognize good scripts seems to have faded. The man knows how to make American classics (“When Harry Met Sally…,” “A Few Good Men,” “The Princess Bride,” etc.), but can’t seem to find or identify the type of work lately that can keep his reputation sound. The Mark Andrus screenplay is just not interesting, and couldn’t have been interesting on paper. None of the characters have any depth, they are just given »

And So It Goes -The Review

24 July 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a film that tries to prove that the multiplex from May through September isn’t off-limits to the Aarp crowd. Hey, they like to get out of the heat for an escape to a cool theatre too! Usually a flick with a (ahem) more mature cast and subject is released in the late Fall or Winter. So, who’s giving you a chance to take the folks (or your auntie or “Nan-Nan”) to the cinema in July (hopefully far down the hall, away from those noisy action epics) ? Why, it’s none other than Mr. Rob Reiner (no meathead jokes or I’ll age myself), a big time feature director for thirty years now (three decades since Spinal Tap)!. And he’s reteamed with the Oscar-winning star of one of his most popular efforts, Michael Douglas from The American President. Whose co-star is another Oscar winner, Annie Hall herself, »

‘And So It Goes’… and goes… and goes…

And So It Goes

Written by Mark Andrus

Directed by Rob Reiner

USA, 2014

While most movies end with ‘happily ever after’, real life is rarely that generous. Rob Reiner’s latest romantic-comedy, And So It Goes, ponders the challenges of love and loss for the senior set. Though it has the noblest of intentions, there’s just not enough romance or comedy to warrant a recommendation. Even the considerable charms of Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton aren’t enough to distract you from the glacial pacing and familiar storylines.

Douglas plays Oren Little, an embittered widower whose only kind words are reserved for potential clients of his real estate agency. All Oren wants is to sell his family home and retire to a sleepy little village in Vermont. Living next door to him is the ever-cheery widow, Leah (Diane Keaton), who spends her evenings cultivating a second career as a middling lounge singer. »

Interview: Director Rob Reiner on Latest Film ‘And So it Goes’

23 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Rob Reiner has lived two distinct show business lives. He played a major role in one of the most famous television shows in history, “All in the Family,” and broke out afterward as a classic American film director, with hits such as “This is Spinal Tap” and “The Princess Bride.” His latest film is “And So it Goes.”

The film stars Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, as an older couple discovering a connection that on the surface seems highly unlikely. This is Rob Reiner’s 15th feature film as director, after such classics as “The Sure Thing,” “Stand By Me,” “When Harry Met Sally…,” “Misery,” “A Few Good Men,” “The American President” and “Ghosts of Mississippi.” Michael Douglas last worked with Reiner when he portrayed the title character in “The American President.” Reiner himself performs a small supporting role in “And So it Goes.”

There are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little (Michael Douglas), and that’s just the way he likes it.

Clueless about how to care for a sweet, abandoned nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbor Leah (Diane Keaton) and tries to resume his life uninterrupted.

First Trailer Lands For The Michael Douglas Comedy ‘And So It Goes’

10 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Michael Douglas is enjoying somewhat of a comeback. Following on from last year’s success with Behind The Candelabra, and the average-though-relatively-harmless Last Vegas, Douglas will next be seen in the comedy And So It Goes, where he plays a self-centered estate agent who couldn’t care less about anyone else. The film is directed by filmmaking legend Rob Reiner, and is set to hit cinemas in the Us on the 22nd July, and the UK a touch before on the 18th July.

New York realtor Oren Little is obnoxious, self-centered and greedy. His plan is to make one more killing on the housing market, retire and spend the rest of his life alone. But Little’s life is turned upside-down when his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter he didn’t even know existed on his doorstep. Little tries to fob off his new charge with his quirky neighbor Leah, »

Berlin: Rob Reiner Talks New Film ‘And So It Goes’

5 February 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2006, when Rob Reiner was shooting “The Bucket List” with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, he got the idea for another project — a feature dealing with people falling in love later in life.

Eight years later, Reiner’s “And So It Goes” is up for sale at Berlin. Produced by Foresight Unlimited in association with Reiner’s Castle Rock, it marks the first time Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton have appeared onscreen together.

Douglas portrays a self-centered real estate agent whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter, played by Sterling Jerins, whom he never knew. Keaton plays the neighbor of Douglas’ character. The cast is rounded out by Frankie Valli, Scott Shepherd and Frances Sternhagen.

“We really thought about getting Jack (Nicholson) in the film but he really does not want to act any more,” Reiner said.
