A retired 70-year-old widower, Ben (played by Robert De Niro), is bored with retired life. He applies to a be a senior intern at an online fashion retailer and gets the position. The founder of the company is Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway), a tireless, driven, demanding, dynamic workaholic.

Quotes

Davis: Whoa! Is this your closet? Busy man about town. What's in all these drawers?
Ben: Boxers, T-shirts, pocket squares, handkerchiefs...
Davis: Okay, what's the deal with the handkerchief? That one I just don't get at all.
Ben: Okay. It's essential. That your generation doesn't know that is criminal. The best reason to carry a handkerchief is to lend it.
Davis: Hmm.
Ben: Ask Jason about this. Women cry, Davis. We carry it for them. One of the last vestiges of the chivalrous gent.

That kind of movie that makes your day
23 September 2015 | by karimhamamo160See all my reviews

This is my first review on the IMDb website and i have been a member for more that 9 years now, that's who much i loved this movie. It just give you that positive thoughts and energy within a lovely comedian scenario.

I loved how they mix between the classic culture with the modern one. It was very interesting to watch how they remind our generation about the habits which they are missing from the classic one.

De Niro and Anne Hathaway have excellent work chemistry. Director and camera teams made a great job too... Team work, thank you for this lovely movie...
