‘And So It Goes’ Trailer: Grumpy Old Man Flirting

Published 12 months ago by

Michael Douglas (Last Vegas) and Diane Keaton (The Big Wedding) have the types of careers young actors only dream about. They’ve starred in dozens of films, worked with the best in the business, and they’ve won three Oscars between the two of them, but they’ve never starred in a movie together.

Now, director Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride) is finally uniting Douglas and Keaton on the same screen in And So It Goes, a romantic comedy about friendship, family, and love – with some stumbling flirtation thrown in for good measure.

In And So It Goes, Douglas plays Oren Little, a cantankerous and self-centered realtor who doesn’t get along with his neighbor Leah (Keaton). When Little is suddenly charged with taking care of his 9-year-old granddaughter, he enlists Leah’s help to find some common ground with the girl he never knew existed.

Though Douglas and Keaton have never worked together before, Douglas did play the commander-in-chief in Reiner’s The American President. Neither the stars nor the directer, however, are new to the rom-com rodeo. Reiner directed When Harry Met Sally and Rumor Has It, while both Douglas and Keaton have starred in their fair share of romance films.

From the trailer And So It Goes follows a typical romance plot: man and woman hate each other, man and woman must work together, man and woman develop feelings for each other. It’s a common storyline found among romantic comedy movies that most people have probably seen once or twice before (at least).

However, it will be Douglas and Keaton’s performances that raise And So It Goes up to something beyond the film’s formula. Between the late-in-life romance and the struggling single parent role thrust upon Douglas’s character, the movie certainly gives both stars plenty of material to work with and make their own.


And So It Goes hits theaters on July 11th, 2014.

  1. So it’s a romcom for the elderly.
    Not trolling, but these “senior genre” are increasing in quantity these last couple of years. Movies like Last Vegas, Mamma Mia, R.E.D 1&2, Expendables Trilogy, Grudge Match.
    I’m in my forties if anyone’s curious

    • You old fogey! :)

    • That’ll be the generation of actors and actresses (not to mention writers and directors) in their prime from the 1960s-1980s aiming for both their own baby boomer demographic and a newer audience, I reckon.

      • I’m considering changing my username from ‘DC fanboy’ to ‘ DC middleaged fan’
        Apparently it’s misleading the commenters. What do you think guys?

        • I’d say that’s their problem. :-)

  2. Great. Another movie where Doame Keaton plays the exact same character in the exact same movie with the exact same look.

    • Doame. What the hell kinda spell check was that?

      • The John Travolta kind?

  3. Hey,what the hell?! I thought Micheal Douglas was on his death bed!What’s he doing still making movies?
