Sentimental generational comedy, with Matthau mugging through as an irascible senior citizen, resisting all attempts made by his family to uproot him, and generally sprinkling Grey Power with sparks of a second childhood. A bit of an easy option for Jack Lemmon's debut as a director, and a strange project to involve former blacklist victim John Paxton (Crossfire, Murder, My Sweet) as screenwriter.
