Movie Review by Zara
January 28th, 2007

Boloney Pony

I might have a soft spot in my heart for this movie because the cantankerous character played by Burgess Meredith reminds me of my grandfather. My Papa was a foul-mouthed little Italian who always said whatever was on his mind and didn't care what people thought about him, much to the chagrin of his children and amusement of his grandchildren.

The movie revolves around two old guys with completely different personalities who happen to have the misfortune of being next-door neighbors. When a hot older babe moves onto their block, they both begin trying to romance her. Hilarity ensues. Normally two men fighting over a woman is a little cringe worthy, but when it's for the blue-haired set, something changes and makes it side splitting.

Ann-Margret is still sexy years after she romances Elvis and Lemon and Matthau are the epitome of how comedic actors should attack roles. But it's still Burgess who wins my heart and makes me shed a tear over how I wish my Papa was still around.
