Britt, Bob, and Dave say what they please and don't hold anything back on their quest to make the most of their sunset years. Opinionated and set in their ways, each man confronts aging in his own unique fashion: conventional Dave quietly rebels against how his wife wants them to spend their retirement, hoarder Britt struggles to learn internet dating from his houseboat, and lively ladies' man Bob juggles an unstable girlfriend and a fanciful memoir about his so-called 'notorious' past

For those who are seniors or interested to take a glimpse at how three men carry on the bright side of aging as represented by a forced-to-retire executive sexagenarian, a grumpy sad sack septuagenarian and a fireplug energetic octogenarian. Bob's reading on his memoir was most thought provoking ... we are young once, get older and do things all the while with no scruple etc.

Anyone recently retired, or near retirement should enjoy this film of three elderly men navigating through both the joys and pitfall's of the "golden year's"

A delightful story of 3 men from different social & financial standings who all become close friends. Two of them begin this quest & challenge to help the third member of this newly formed trio. It gives them purpose as they get more determined to see Britt succeed. It is halarious to watch these "old goats" as they teach another to successfully use & navigate today's technilogical devices. Also they show him the ropes of online dating. Which requires including advice on just basic dating fundamentals in general. An upbeat, feel good movie. I recommend it.

Not sure if the quote [Two men looked out from prison bars-one saw mud the other stars.] was indeed by Langston Hughes. But it meant that one has the choice to accept the inevitable and look above for stars; or one can count one's blessings or problems.. A net searched seemed to reference Hughes or Frederick Langbridge or Dale Carnegie. Anyone out there with definitive source?

Octogenarian Bob read his memoir for an audience: A good life is one of risks coupled with, well of course, creativity, love and giving back within one’s capacity to do so. The single most important regret is that I didn’t live up to that code. Yet my life has been exceeding full and bountiful, and that helps me keep tilting towards windmills, all of which reminds me of a Langston Hughes poem. It’s one of my favorites. [Two men looked up from the prison bars. One saw mud and one saw stars.]

Bod continued: If I learned anything over these years, it’s that the thrill of my life has been more in the chase and not so much in the catching. I guess some things never change. I just keep going around and around. That which we are, we are. So at some point this rambling narrative must end. And I’ve always been one who would rather jump before I’m pushed. So for me, it’s sooner rather than later. So be it.
