Lemmon and Matthau team for their seventh movie, in parts that seem written just for them. Boyhood friends and retired neighbors, they have been feuding for so long that neither of them can remember why. Doesn't matter much, when it provides a reason for them to spout off at each other every morning and play nasty practical jokes every night. This, and ice-fishing, is life as they know it, until feisty younger woman Ann-Margret moves into the neighborhood and lights some long-dormant fires. 83-year-old Meredith is a special treat playing Lemmon's 90-something father. Filmed in Wabasha, Minnesota, and grumpy, in the most pleasant way.

I recently just saw this movie and I really liked it! John and Max used to be best friends when they were little until a girl got in the middle and John ended up marrying her. When they were two old men, John's wife has past, and they still live next door and argue with each other. When a pretty woman, Ariel, moves in across the street, she becomes friends with both John and Max, the fight is going strong. This movie will definitely give you a good laugh!
