It is hard to ex­tract a high old time from a mad­den­ingly mild pro­duc­tion like this when the stakes in­volved are so ex­ceed­ingly low. Will age­ing mar­ried cou­ple Alex (Mor­gan Free­man) and Ruth (Diane Keaton) sell their mil­lion-dol­lar Brook­lyn apart­ment in time to whack their money down on that mil­lion-dol­lar Man­hat­tan crash-pad they’ve been eye­ing off? And if that ain’t enough, will their el­derly pet pooch Dorothy re­turn to her adorable tail-wag­ging ways af­ter a big op­er­a­tion on her arthritic lit­tle legs? A chem­istry-free Free­man (the good-na­tured griz­zly-bear of this tale) and Keaton (go­ing all fluffy-bun­nies at the drop of the hat) gen­er­ates more dead air than an un­tuned ra­dio. Costars Cyn­thia Nixon.
