Movie Reviews

At last on DVD!
Steven M. Davis | North Ogden, UT USA | 05/22/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A charming film with Matthau giving an oscar-nominated performance as a fifth-wheel grandfather living with his son (Charles Aidman), daughter-in-law (Felicia Farr, aka Mrs. Jack Lemmon), and their infant son, whom Grandpa adores. Lemmon directed his pal Matthau in this film, and look for Lemmon doing a brief cameo as a sleeping bus passenger. Into Kotch's life comes Erica, the babysitter, who is forced to drop out of high school due to an unintended pregnancy, and the two strike up an unorthodox relationship (no, it's not what you're thinking). There is a riotous scene where Kotch delivers the girl's baby in the ladies' room of a gas station, and some "awww" moments throughout the film. One quirk: watch for Kotch to speak German in an Italian restaurant, Spanish in a Swiss restaurant, and French in a Mexican restaurant. Give this one a chance and you'll be rewarded."

""Kotch" is a truely wonderful film, highlighted by Walter Mattheau's performance. It starts out as a typical comedic role, but Matthau slowly turns in a tour-de-force as the film goes on. Don't judge this movie prematurely. It is not your average "old man" film. See it."
Matthau Rules!!

"Walter Matthau rules in this sentimental film about an elderly man who refuses to be sent to a nursing home and befriends a runaway pregnant teenager.It's a must see!!"
