Storyline

David sells cars at his father's dealership and, from time to time, visits his grandpa, Joe, at a retirement home. David's a great salesman and he's successful attracting women, one after another. Joe, meanwhile, misses his deceased wife and is done with life. David gives Joe advice on how to get women's attention at the care center, and Joe gives David advice on how to find a lifelong companion. Each dismisses the other's words, then tries them out - David with Julie, a women he met playing football, and Joe with Edna and with Rose. Failures follow success. Can either figure out how to enjoy life and be themselves? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good, entertaining, cute movie
20 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining and "cute" this movie was. I had never heard of it, but love Andy Griffith. In regards to the other reviews, my only negative is that the movie could've toned down some of the sexual stuff. However, I know people who unfortunately express themselves that way in normal conversations. So, it's not too far off. As far as some comments about Andy's portrayal and dialogue, I'm guessing they've only seen him on TAGS and Matlock. Before TAGS he played a real selfish jerk (and wonderfully so) in A Face In The Crowd with Walter Matthau and Patricia Neal. Also, he was great as a vengeful, murderous grandfather in Gramps with John Ritter from the 1990's I believe. Anyway, he's great as usual, and the young actress is very believable as well. Enjoyable overall, and the ending was a surprise that was great...
