Andy has come a long way from Mayberry. Interesting story about we seniors.. I wonder if this was Andy's last movie?

One of the WORST movies ever distributed!
What trash!

VERY GOOD 2008 film - it started a bit slow - but drew me in and I'm glad I watched it.
Don't think I'd seen a film which included 'old-timer' love interests like this one.
The lady actors in their 80's were quite charming - as was Andy Griffith at age 83.
Quality writing and role reversal between young male and old guy as romance teacher was entertaining - as was the fun ending.
'Play the Game' is excellent title that captures much of what goes on during course of the film.
