Love the original. I hope they don't try to have Murphy play both roles. It might be interesting to team him up with Wendell Peirce or Andre Braugher.

Andre Braugher would get my butt in a seat.

How about bringing in Steve Martin for the Jack Lemmon part? Bowfinger reunion!

They should make it a crossover film with the sequel to Twins that Murphy is rumored to be starring in.

Grumpy Old Triplets.

Re: Grumpy Old Men Remake (D: Tim Story) S: Eddie Murphy

Life is one of the most under rated and under thought of movies in the last thirty years.

That montage was heartbreaking.

I just hope they get the right guy for the other grumpy old man.

Eddie is desperate.

Danny Glover and Danny Trejo already did this
