'And So It Goes' is a generic romantic comedy
'Goes' stars Michael Douglas as a curmudgeonly real estate agent and Diane Keaton as his neighbor.
‚ÄúAnd So It Goes,‚ÄĚ directed by Rob Reiner and written by Mark Andrus,¬†is as generic as its title. Michael Douglas plays Oren, a real estate agent¬†and world-class curmudgeon who is trying to sell¬†his spacious Connecticut home¬†for millions more than¬†it's worth. A widower who still mourns¬†his wife, Oren has a junkie son (Scott Shepherd), en route to jail, who¬†unexpectedly shows up with his 9-year-old daughter (Sterling Jerins) in¬†tow. Can Granddad care for the girl while Dad is doing time?¬†
Oren knew¬†nothing of this girl and at first wants nothing to do with her, which is a¬†tip-off that this Scrooge will soon enough become Mr. Cuddly. Abetting¬†the lovefest is Diane Keaton‚Äôs Leah, a neighbor, lounge singer, and¬†widow. I trust you can connect the rest of the dots yourself. Grade:¬†C+ (Rated PG-13 for some sexual references and drug elements.)
