I can honestly say I’ve never seen a movie like this one before. Three elderly men (Bob Burkholder, Britton Crosley and David Vander Wal) play versions of themselves in Taylor Guterson’s honest and funny look at getting older. Britt lives on his little boat and embarks on Internet dating. Bob is writing his memoirs, “Skirting the Edge,” (Burkholder actually did write this book) while leading the local Oatmeal Club and juggling girlfriends. David is a rich man gently forced into retirement by his former company. The three deal with their aging by just being generally cranky and funny, and Guterson captures some genuinely funny and heartwarming moments. I thought the movie was a documentary when it started, but I slowly began to realize it was mostly fiction. I doubt these three guys will become movie stars, but they certainly are movie stars for the duration of this endearing film.
