Kirk Douglas stars as Harry, a one-time prizefighter who embarks on a life-changing journey with his son Lance (Dan Aykroyd) and teenage grandson Michael (Corbin Allred). Feisty at 80 despite a recent stroke, Harry is faced with the prospect of being sent to a retirement home. He convinces his son and grandson to join him in search for thirteen long-lost diamonds.
Along the way, the three generations of men meet up with pit bosses, gangsters and an intriguing madam named Sin-Dee (Lauren Bacall). In the end, Harry and family discover that nothing is more priceless than the time they’ve shared together.
Kirk Douglas personally fought for the MPAA Ratings Board to give this film a PG-13 after it had initially been rated R. But it still contains three profanities and the dialogue is peppered with many obscenities; there aresexual conversations and situations as the old man takes his son and grandson to a brothel; the teenager shows disrespect for his father; the teen suggests you are a total loser if you haven’t used drugs; there’s gambling, teen smoking, and yet again, a dysfunctional family is portrayed. Great cast, but after reading the content, is this something you want to expose yourself to in the name of entertainment?
