Storyline

Senior citizens are being offed by a masked killer who stalks the halls of the small retirement community in which they live. The story opens with a terrifying murder, creating space on the waiting list for Rose to move in. Upon Rose's arrival, she is taken on a tour of the grounds by the quirky, offbeat manager of the joint: Dale. The odd and brightly colored characters continue to pop up as Fanny, her Jewish gossiping neighbor, introduces Rose to "The gang." The routine of daily life is all stirred up at the moment. People are disappearing, there's talk of a ghost, and to top things off, there's an STD outbreak. As terror rises throughout the building, the fear of who's next and who the killer may be, continues to grow. We find ourselves in a game of "Who-done-it?" Is it Desperella, the ground's custodial manager? Is it Kitty, the sexy activities director? Or Zeke, her punk rock boyfriend? Maybe it's one of the elder folks suffering from dementia or seeking some sort of revenge. ... Written by Anonymous

Ridiculously over the top but yes, funny
23 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

A ridiculously over the top film that would have been better if it had toned down the slapstick and played it at least somewhat straighter--but that's me. I know lots of people love this kind of comedy. Given the deliberate use of outrageous stereotypes that still manage to come across as surprisingly sympathetic portrayals of senior citizens who have been dumped and subsequently ignored in a "retirement home", I was able to indulge the outrageousness of the script. I loved the fact that it showed seniors as still sexually active and attractive, and it gave the individuals character. Great cast--it looked as if they had fun with their roles and just went for it. That helped a great deal in making the film fun to watch.

Too many of the vignettes and comedy schtick simply went on too long and dragged down the pace. Tighter pacing would have helped enormously as some of the genuinely funny bits simply fizzled out before moving on to the next scene. This had the overall effect of leaving the audience unfulfilled (a bit too often) rather than wanting more. Still the film had it's laughs and it was great fun to watch recognizable icons of the past (Gilligan's Island Mary Ann is the star--and still gorgeous!) play their ages without apology--and looking fantastic.

There was nothing overtly offensive about the movie's adult themes, unless you object to puppet shows discussing STDs--and single adults talking about sex and sexual innuendo, as well as (mild) schoolyard type rivalries. There is swearing though (Forgot about that) which is something you might want to consider before letting any kiddies watch with you. It offers frank discussion and portrayals about other adult issues as well, including death (there is a murderer stalking the home after all) and drugs as well as loneliness and abandonment--but with a surprisingly sensitive touch for this type of film and of course, (mostly) played for laughs. It IS a comedy...and despite the title, surprisingly few fart or "potty" jokes. I don't recall any nudity even though sex is an ongoing theme in the film.

I would not recommend it for children. Young teens might appreciate it--maybe (they'd like the fart and bathroom jokes most assuredly--and would probably go "EW" at the rest but could still find it funny--gramma having sex? Using condoms?); it would certainly give them a different view of seniors than they usually see in popular entertainment and would offer a light platform for serious discussion. For a lazy afternoon's entertainment then yeah, go for it. Watch it with Gramma and get her reaction!
