A struggling couple are in dire straits and living paycheck to paycheck. When an opportunity to live rent-free in a 55 and older community arises, they are forced to disguise themselves as seniors and try to fake their way into living there. As they transform their lives, the residents are not easily fooled, and begin to suspect the young couple is exactly that, young. As their plight is witnessed by the many watching eyes of the neighborhood, the young couple learns that being a retired senior citizen is not as easy as it looks like. Written by Anonymous

Small Budget But Huge Heart!
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I read a review of this movie which, while honest, was brutally so. You have to accept a low budget movie as that and look beyond the lack of professional actors, expensive sets, and incredible sound design and look at the story, the heart of the movie, the effort that went into making it what it is. And with this in mind, 55 and Older is a wonderful piece of work!

Yes, there's issues on every level you'd expect to see when you've got more drive and ambition than dollars. But so what? The fact is they put together a movie with an interesting plot, interesting characters, some fun ideas, and they delivered. While it might be nice to see this same story done again with all of the benefits of a large studio production, there's something incredibly endearing about 55 and Older just as it is!

Personally, I LIKE that its filled with non-actors. I like that you can feel the sense of "We're doing this and its going to be fine" throughout.

I won't give away the plot though its fairly simple and straight forward. There are no huge twists, no surprises, but that's okay and very in keeping with the characters, setting, and story.

The 90 minutes I spent watching this film were fun! I laughed and had a good time. And isn't that why we watch films to begin with?

55 and Older deserves recognition for delivering a nice story with likable characters on a constrained budget. And that's just fine.
