We gave it a C-

Nearly 20 years after The American President, Michael Douglas reunites with director Rob Reiner for a comedy in which he plays widowed Realtor Oren Little. When his estranged son is sent to jail, Oren is saddled with the 9-year-old granddaughter (Sterling Jerins) he never knew he had. Soon he’s foisting his granddaughter on a sweet neighbor (Diane Keaton) with whom he eventually makes a love connection. Douglas relished the chance to work with Keaton. ”She’s a good kisser, that’s for sure,” he says. Plus, the Connecticut shoot was a mere 35-minute commute from his home base in New York City. ”It’s always more comfortable when you can sleep in your own bed.”
