PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
John and Max resolve to save their beloved bait shop from turning into an Italian restaurant, just as its new female owner catches Max's attention.
Another sequel titled "Grumpiest Old Men" was planned. It was to be filmed in Rome and feature Marcello Mastroianni as Maria's former husband who contests her marriage to Max on the grounds that their divorce was never finalized. The film however was canceled due to Mastroianni's death in the following year and the box-office failures of Out to Sea (1997) and The Odd Couple II (1998).
John, how could you?
In the scene where Catfish Hunter is hooked and pulling the boat through the water, the rear of the boat is up high enough to see that there is no lower unit (propeller) on the outboard motor.
Outtakes are run beneath the closing credits, including Burgess Meredith giving many different bawdy names for the Hawaiian island he visited, and the line he uses to invite Maria's mother back to his room.
