i was very disappointed in this movie. It is advertised to be a very funny movie however, all of the funny parts of this movie where in the advertisment. It is definitely a older audience movie. The entire theather had about four retired couples and one older lady. This is a movie that should be seen in budget or wait till it comes out on video.

First of all....I did like it. Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn star in this simple comedy about a couple facing "the first day of their rest of their lives" from a perched high view in an empty nest. The kids are grown, living in new cities, and out of the house...and so that leaves Steve and Goldie on their own to sort out their personal future together. The story line touches on a few realities...job loss, honest communication between partners, estranged relations with at least one of the kids, being a crime victim, and dealing with the police in New York. The problem with this story line is that it approaches these realities by taking us on a trip of old Steve Martin films...this was more the story of a "Father of the Bride" taking a ride on "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" and bringing along the Goldie Hawn of "Protocol". Don't get me wrong, the film was entertaining and had some cute comical moments, but it was more like watching the director's cut of a previously seen Steve Martin movie. Bottom line.....Martin and Hawn go to New York to see about a job offer and end up falling victim to the worms hiding in the Big Apple. Rating: 5 of 10.

Some movies are ok if you pay 2 bucks as a rental. This picture does not even come close to that. I saw this at the budget for $1.75 and it was still a total waste of money and time. Yes, I did laugh briefly around 2 or 3 times. However, I think they were boredom laughs. If anyone sees this show and likes it, I would suggest getting a hobby.

rating: 0 out of 5

This remake of the Sandy Duncan/Jack Lemmon original is mildly entertaining. We saw it when there was nothing else at Budget playing, and as a stop-gap, it suited nicely. It's definitely for an older crowd, and all the over-50s laughed at all the right places. But on the whole, you can wait for rental for an evening when you're bored and want some light entertainment (which is not a bad reason to rent a movie!).

This movie was actually pretty good, but I found that most of the jokes were ones that adults would understand better, I never seemed to get all of them. Other than that, it was a pretty good movie. I don't think this would be one to see in theaters, but you might try renting it.

An ugly remake of the 1969 movie starring Jack Lennon and Sandy Dennis. Like the 1969 film Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin went to New York and got lost. Martin is trying to get a job offer in the big city. The reason why the 1969 movie succeed is because when the film came out, New York City is seen as a scary place. When the 1999 version came out, the city wasn't much of a scary place. Therefore, this film didn't have nothing to go onto, except it became more of a bad sitcon of a movie.
