Storyline

A modern comedy that explores the simple truth that it's never too late to start over again. Even at age 50. We meet two long-time golf-buddies, Adam, going through a trial separation from his wife of 15 years and Jon, who is not only losing work to the 'young guy', but also dealing with a 'generous' prostate. They decide to take off on a weekend journey to let loose and re-live the Palm Springs get-a-way of their younger days but meet with unexpected results. Struggling to fit in with the younger crowd, they find surprising comfort through encounters with women nearer their own age. As the weekend progresses, both are forced to come to a truce with middle life's predicaments. A film that asks the question, "If fifty is the new thirty then why do my knees ache?" in what may be the world's first coming of age story... about the coming of age. Written by Greybury

Laugh Out Loud Adult Comedy
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an experience to sit in a theater and listen to everyone laugh out loud, through out the film. The ensemble cast is wonderful and pitch perfect together. The performances are brilliant, the pace is perfect, the dialog is crisp and witty and every adult can relate to this story. There are enough twists and turns in the story to keep this from being predictable, but even if you do see something coming, the performances make it a joy to watch it unfold on the screen. It will make you look at your best friendships in a whole new light and relationships from a long term perspective. Thank you Marty and Drew for one of the best adult comedies I've seen in years. Can't wait for the sequel!
