Storyline

Charlie and Dan have been best friends and business partners for thirty years; their Manhattan public relations firm is on the verge of a huge business deal with a Japanese company. With two weeks to sew up the contract, Dan gets a surprise: a woman he married on a drunken impulse nearly nine years before (annulled the next day) shows up to tell him he's the father of her twins, now seven, and she'll be in jail for 14 days for a political protest. Dan volunteers to keep the tykes, although he's up tight and clueless. With Charlie's help is there any way they can be dad and uncle, meet the kids' expectations, and still land the account?

Trivia

The film's release date was postponed three times. First, due to Bernie Mac's untimely death. The second time was for the death of John Travolta and Kelly Preston's son, Jett Travolta. The final time was because Robin Williams had a health scare that required surgery. All of the postponement ultimately caused the movie to be released more than a year after the original, intended release date, finally releasing on November 25, 2009. See more »

Old Dogs
10 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh My God this was the funniest movie. It kept my husband and myself laughing through out the movie. Just good clean humor.

John's daughter and wife were terrific...I would recommend this movie to any age group.

I had read the reviews and disagree with the negative ones. I just don't understand how anyone could not like it. It went by fast, certainly kept our attention and we laughed until hurt. Actually the entire audience laughed through out the movie. All the actors were great, they worked well with each other, and although it may have been predictable, it was delightful
