The title's bland but the film is anything but (particularly for the woman of a certain age). Harry Sanborn (Nicholson) is a legendary womanizer. Now 60-something, he's notorious for dating only much-younger chicks. Harry's current squeeze is Marin (Peet), who takes Harry to her mom's Hamptons beach house to consummate the relationship. Turns out mom, successful (if neurotic) divorced playwright Erica Barry (Keaton), and her sister, feminist professor Zoe (McDormand), are there as well. Harry has a mild heart attack and his doctor, Julian Mercer (Reeves), says Harry can't travel, leading to changing ideas, beds, and relationships. It's Keaton's film all the way (she's a natural wonder) and even scene-stealer Nicholson concedes to her charm; McDormand provides some droll asides and Reeves is relaxed.
