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

An un-funny remake of "Swingers" dealing with 50 year olds and the search for love and more. I didn't enjoy this. I say C-

"50 is the new thirty, isn't it funny how you never hear 30 year olds saying that?" Adam is going through a divorce. His best friend Jon is single and trying to help him out decides to go on a long weekend to Palm Springs. In between golf rounds the two 50 year olds meet a young 25 year old woman who introduces them to her roommate...her 50 year old mother. The two men then begin to realize what's important and what they need in their lives. Lately I have been watching movies before I see the previews for them. It helps me to not have any preconceived notions going in and I watch it with a more open mind. I watched the preview for this one, and I realize why I don't usually do it anymore. The preview is very funny and I was looking forward to it. I was very let down. The best way to describe this is if the guys from "Swingers" grew up but didn't really change (except they lost their humor) and turned into pathetic versions of themselves. It could be because I'm only 33 and this is meant for an older crowd but I didn't really like this movie at all. Overall, not for me, but 50 year olds and up may. I just didn't get it. I give it a C-
