The IRS at the time of the movie didn't audit a year if it was over ten years old. In the movie they said he collected for 20 years and eleven of those 20 were not claimed properly. That is past the ten year mark. He had not been collected for probably a number of years so, those years would not have been audited and they wouldn't be entitled to anything. See more »
You mean the low-life, ass-wipe, egg-sucker John Gustafson?
Have you seen him?
The man's crazy. Loco. Always hanging out around those kinky strip bars. You know, the ones where the men take their clothes off. That's of course if he's taken his medication.
Yes, without it he could be anywhere. Wandering around talking to the trees. I'm telling you the man's a menace, he's always drinking, starting fights.

What a great situation, and great acting, in a fast little farce.
Grumpy Old Men (1993)
The set-up is so funny, and it's so great to see Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau at it again, you have to laugh even though the jokes are often more silly than funny. It's a feel-good drama despite all the hysterics. Maybe the best moments are Burgess Meredith as Lemmon's father, delivering crude old man lines with enough raw disregard for everything to sink a ship. "Did you mounter her?" he asks his elderly son.
Obviously a hit enough to lead to "Grumpier Old Men" two years later, also funny but less fresh. And check out the Meredith outtakes on YouTube--just type his name and look for the "Grumpier Old Men" clip.
