This sequel to 1993's GRUMPY OLD MEN finds the crochety seniors still full of venom for each other, even when a gorgeous Italian woman moves in and threatens to turn their local bait store into a restaurant.
The hilarious, bickering neighbors from "Grumpy Old Men" return in this entertaining sequel. This time, John and Max team up to shut down a restaurant that's replaced their favorite bait shop. However, amid their scheming, Max manages to fall in love with Maria, who runs the eatery with her mother.
Meanwhile, the wedding between Max's son and John's daughter is called off, which causes the two elderly men to begin feuding once again.
Also returning for the sequel is John's father, a hilariously dirty old man who woos Maria's prudish mother.
