A dumb 108-year old should-have-died-a-long-time-ago geezer (Peter 'Columbo' Falk) shacks up with D.B. (stands for 'Dumb Bell') Sweeney.
This movie is all about the 'interesting' things these two idiots go through as they try to adapt to one another's lifestyles under the same roof. Sweeney is as bland as ever while Falk tries to look charming at which he fails miserably, especially when he stumbles over to the local cemetery to hang out with his (dead) 'friends'.
The hatred and prejudice of the Jew writers spews fourth once again when Sweeney's Jewish girlfriend takes him home to meet her racist mother, who says, "So you're Catholic, huh, young man?", to which Sweeney's equally contemptible girlfriend replies, "It's OK, Mom, he's one of the 'good ones' ".
No laughs found here, though it might have been funny to see Falk's crabby old fart get hit by a train five minutes into the flick.
