  1. 63
    While Fienberg's direction is no great shakes, the film showcases its veteran cast.
  2. Alas, the conceit of a double-dating Grandson and Gramps does not produce a great many laughs in this cringeworthy film.
  3. 50
    The screenplay, written by first-time director Marc Fienberg, fervently stays true to an ancient sitcom tradition.

    This Lifetime-ready comedy is hardly provocative--let alone perceptive, funny, or fresh
  5. If you love Viagra jokes, look no further. Otherwise, stay home and find yourself a "Golden Girls" marathon.
  6. 38
    Fienberg’s film spends most of its time trying to convince us that true love starts when you stop playing games. Then, in the final minutes, it reverses itself and puts gamesmanship back up on another wobbly pedestal. The result is hard to cheer.
  7. 0
    This comedy is a bilge pump of tacky jokes, fake sentiment, and hollow performances, accompanied on the soundtrack by lite rock and hokey music cues. It should never have been made, though it's probably guaranteed a long life at bad-film festivals.
