|They're Grumpy Old Men [Side A]. And since they're played by famed screen odd couple Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, they're also Funny Old Men. The wit hits the fan as the two play Minnesota ice-fishing pals whose crusty friendship grows hilariously icier as they vie for an attractive widow (Ann-Margret). Also in the cast are Daryl Hannah, Kevin Pollak, Ossie Davis and an outrageously randy Burgess Meredith. The two leads grab their fishing rods to reel in another comic whopper in the sequel Grumpier Old Men [Side B]. Most of the original cast returns, and Sophia Loren plays the vivacious newcomer who wants to turn the beloved bait shop into a chichi ristorante. Of course, in this part of the Land of 1000 Lakes, that means war! Enjoy. And, yes, this is the movie with the "man-sized manicotti" outtakes!Format: DVD MOVIE|

Editor's NoteIncludes the two great movies which continue the bickery friendship begun with "The Odd Couple." GRUMPY OLD MEN: Two crusty, feuding neighbors vie over the affections of a beautiful woman who moves in on their street. GRUMPIER OLD MEN: This sequel to 1993's "Grumpy Old Men" finds the crochety seniors still full of venom for each other, even when a gorgeous Italian woman moves in and threatens to turn their local bait store into a restaurant.
