Grumpy real estate agent Oren Little (Michael Douglas) becomes interested in his lounge singer neighbour Leah (Diane Keaton) who is still reeling from the loss of her husband.
Then his estranged son drops off his previously unknown nine-year-old granddaughter Sarah (Sterling Jerins) whilst he goes off to serve time in prison.
Much to the disgust of the emotional and nurturing Leah, Oren is resistant and palms Sarah off to care, whilst the audience waits for his heart to melt.
This Rob Reiner comedy is very standard fare. Keaton is her usual likeable and quirky self and Douglas does grumpy very well but there is a certain lack of chemistry between the two. Still, it might make a good date movie. (CC)
