Address Comments To:
The movie has several obscenities and profanities. There is also an implied sexual liaison, but nothing is shown. By revealing John's celibacy for over fifteen years and Ariel's for five (since the death of both their spouses), Hollywood has attempted to show restraint and personal responsibility for any acts of intimacy. However, because Hollywood still doesn't understand that everything happens under the eyes of God, their union falls short of a moral sexual relationship. Even so, the acting by all three of these long-time actors--Lemmon, Matthau and Ann-Margret--is delightful and commendable.
