Active grandparents as real as life
This comedy really touches one´s heart. Hilarious at times, sentimental at others, you will most likely find yourself reflected as one of the many characters.
This story about 3 jobless men in their 50s goes through many familiar situations for anyone in a Western society: unemployment, the need to be become an entrepreneur, work-life balance, child care, etc. Many of today´s life issues are linked in the struggles of the three main characters and their families.
In short, a feel-good movie with a much needed moral to society on active elderly empowerment. Had a good time with my wife, well worth the ticket.
