AND SO IT GOES ( M)
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)
