Alright, so, this movie was pretty good. I’ve never been into the sort of ‘romcom’ ‘life’ genre; it’s too mushy, but this was not bad. The dialogue was smart, the characters were interesting and fun, and the plot stayed steady throughout the course of the movie. Except the end, that felt a little rushed.
The movie is about a retired gentleman who, like any person who has lived his life working, suddenly can’t find anything to do with his free time. He goes back to work as an intern at a new internet shopping company where he meets the always-on-the-go spitfire CEO. At first, it seems as if the old and the new may clash, but perhaps some genteel logic mixed in with the energy of youth can create a wonderful combination.
With Robert de Niro and Anne Hathaway leading the charge in this movie it’s not surprising that this movie was good. Both actors are known for their serious and comedic roles as well as their diversity. The plot, like I stated before, was good, but also fairly obvious. Sometimes, though, it’s not always a bad thing. Movies like these are less and less common these days; seeing characters blooming in different times of their lives, how they affect each other, it’s really enjoyable.
