Although the door to his ice shanty says the initials of his first and middle name are JW, Burgess Meredith's character of Grandpa Gustafson in this movie and its sequel Grumpier Old Men (1995), is never actually addressed by his real first name by any of the other characters. See more »

Burgess Meredith, as Grandpa, is shown acting out different versions of one scene (A245/84B or A246/84B). Presumably the nature of the scene meant that the choice of which version to use had to be made later. See more »
John Gustafson (Jack Lemmon) and Max Goldman (Walter Matthau) are neighbors living in snowy Minnesota who have been fighting with each other for several years.Then a lovely widow called Ariel Truax (Ann-Margret) moves to the street.That means competition between John and Max.Grumpy Old Men from 1993 is great fun for seniors and juniors.I'm only 18 but I'm getting older all the time.Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau were great together.Unfortunately Walter died to a heart attack last July at the age of 79.There are also some other great actors in the movie, including Ossie Davis, Daryl Hannah and Kevin Pollak.Burgess Meredith (1909-1997) is brilliant playing Lemmon's father in the movie.Grumpy Old Men is a heart warming comedy with lots of terrific scenes with Lemmon and Matthau.Don't miss the bloopers during credits.And don't miss this movie.
