Richard Dreyfuss Doesn't Disappoint
12 January 2019 | by cpbirdieSee all my reviews

Of course I'm going to watch a movie starring Richard Dreyfuss and Chevy Chase. And I wasn't disappointed. It was funny with a message, but not so bleak as say "The Bucket List". I totally enjoyed this, yet another, movie about not getting older, but being old. I never think I'm going to enjoy these movies, too close to home, but this one was outstanding to me because of Richard Dreyfus. He always excels, whether in a dramatic role or a comedic role such as Bob in "What About Bob". He is wonderfully believable in this as a former standup comedian. Chevy is mostly the straight guy, and good at it, but I miss his goofiness. One restaurant scene allowed him some schtck and it was hilarious. The writing was excellent; the jokes didn't fall flat except when they were supposed to. And who doesn't like a good road trip? Could have done without the lengthy musical scene - nobody sings very well in it and it felt out of place with the rest of the story. Loved the cameo appearances by some great, old, comics who are still very much relevant today. Another good, watchable flick from Netflix.
