Superior sequel to the 1993 original, continuing the adventures of the two old crones (, ), now no longer competing for ‘s affection since she married lucky Lemmon. Matthau gets thrown for a romantic loop of his own when a sexy widow (, looking divine) comes to town and turns his beloved bait store into an Italian restaurant. The film is geared towards the first installment’s fans, so there’s really no need to explain its contents: if you like one, you’ll like the other. That said, I found this one funnier and more charming, plus it features a lovely in an excellent supporting role.
