Sarah Jessica Parker,
Harry Sanborn is an aged music industry exec with a fondness for younger women like Marin, his latest trophy girlfriend. Things get a little awkward when Harry suffers a heart attack at the home of Marin's mother Erica. Left in the care of Erica and his doctor, a love triangle starts to take shape.Written by
After Harry is forced to move into her beach house following his heart attack, Erica complains that she has become "a character in a Kaufman and Hart play!" This is a reference to The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942), a play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, in which an obnoxious house guest, Sheridan Whiteside, is forced to move into a family home after breaking his hip, and drives his hosts crazy with his outrageous demands.

This movie took me by surprise, I wasn't sure if I could handle watching old actors getting it on but this movie turned out to be a great romantic comedy. Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton always give their 100% best in their performances, they did a great job in their roles. It would have been nice to see more input from Frances McDormand and Keanu Reeves, but otherwise I really enjoyed the movie.
