LAM­EN­TA­BLE ma­ture- age rom- com where the rom is hard to love, and the com is hard to fi nd. Michael Dou­glas stars as wid­owed real- es­tate hustler Oren Lit­tle, a grumpily geri­atric Gor­don Gecko work­ing on one last big sale: his fam­ily home.

The ask­ing price is $ 8 mil­lion. The mar­ket is of­fer­ing $ 6 mil­lion. Suffi ce to say it ain’t no fi xer- up­per, and Oren isn’t bat­tling for a buck.

Nev­er­the­less, we’re asked to quickly warm to the cur­mud­geonly charms of this ornery old fox, who ap­pears yet to meet a fel­low hu­man be­ing he can stand. En­ter next- door neigh­bour ( Diane Keaton) to amorously prod away at a soft side to Oren that is al­most as un­like­able as his hard side. Now show­ing Vil­lage Cine­mas ( Ho­bart and East­lands only)
