Real estate agent Oren Little (Michael Douglas) is an old grump whose every happiness, what he had of it, was buried with his wife years ago.

Since then it's been a quick slide into senility and he's not apologising for it. Only his life takes a sudden turn when his son drops off a 10 year old granddaughter he did not even know existed. And so it goes.

Unsurprisingly, as its by the same writer Mark Andrus, it shares some similarities with 'As Good As It Gets' - including the same lead actress in Dianne Keaton. And in true Keaton style, she plays the same self-righteous, flailing old lady who hasn't had sex in years.

An unlikely romance of course blossoms between this pair of widowers, softened by Little's granddaughter Sarah.



And So It Goes is a little predictable in the way feel good films are and there's a few elements of the storyline that are a little underdeveloped but it all wraps up in the end the way it should and suits its target audience; 50 plus and after a light-hearted giggle.

But there are a few funny moments, like a 70 something year old lady telling a young real estate agent, who may or may not be a relative, to 'blow me'.

In cinemas now.
