I liked the premise of this, sounding a little like Old School and expecting a recent Hollywood mindless comedy decided to watch it one afternoon...
After some decent credits set to an old style cine film, we're plunged into the actual film - wow, what a strange film!
Firstly, it's immediately noticeable that the production is VERY amateurish:
Sound - weird protracted scenes in near silence to completely inappropriate background 'music'
Camera work - literally looks like it's been shot with a $100 camcorder and occasionally a mobile phone. The focus zooms in and out randomly, whole scenes are blurred etc.
Acting - utterly awful and obviously full of non-actors. The main actor talks like Kermit the frog and I assume the character of his father is his real father, as he sounds the same and can't act at all. Why do all the old people randomly walk around holding out their hands palm upwards like weird zombies?
Plot - absurd, and not in a good way. The main couple look like exactly what they are - 20 somethings with absurd wigs and talcum powder on their face. What is with the weird geeky friend and older boss and their pointless and boring 'dating' lessons and gay jokes - the film just randomly flips to this and back again. At times it moves so slow it's difficult to remember what the film's supposed to be about.
Overall, this reminds me very much of one of those obscure and cheesily retitled ultra low budget 'Troma' releases from the mid eighties, like Fat Guy Goes Nutzoid.
I liked a few things, like the opening 'wake up scene'...OK actually that's all I liked.
A struggling couple are in dire straits and living paycheck to paycheck. When an opportunity to live rent-free in a 55 and older community arises, they are forced to disguise themselves as seniors and try to fake their way into living there. As they transform their lives, the residents are not easily fooled, and begin to suspect the young couple is exactly that, young. As their plight is witnessed by the many watching eyes of the neighborhood, the young couple learns that being a retired senior citizen is not as easy as it looks like.
