Critic Reviews

  1. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    50
    The comedy's broad perfs, predictable story beats and pro but characterless packaging have a smallscreen feel.
  2. 50
    The screenplay, written by first-time director Marc Fienberg, fervently stays true to an ancient sitcom tradition.
  3. Ultimately it's sunk by the hole in the middle: Paul Campbell (presidential aide Billy on "Battlestar Galactica") who substitutes smarm for charm as the archetypal player who gets played.
  4. Alas, the conceit of a double-dating Grandson and Gramps does not produce a great many laughs in this cringeworthy film.
  5. 40
    This Lifetime-ready comedy is hardly provocative--let alone perceptive, funny, or fresh
  6. Undeniably offers cheap laughs, its most receptive audiences will likely be found in retirement-community auditoriums.
  7. If you love Viagra jokes, look no further. Otherwise, stay home and find yourself a "Golden Girls" marathon.
