Rating: PG-13 Year: 1986 Category: Comedy Sci-Fi
Director: Ron Howard Time: 117:00:00 min. Writer: Tom Benedek

Mine: Wonderful, uplifting, funny. The older cast is terrific. Steve Gutenberg is even good. Who knew that Ron Howard would be such a good director.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Florida senior citizens discover an actual fountain of youth in this warm, humanistic fantasy-drama, marred only by derivative and too literal science-fiction finale. What a pleasure to watch this cast at work! (Ameche won Best Supporting Actor Oscar. ) Screenplay by Tom Benedek, from David Saperstein's novel; another impressive directing job by Howard. Followed by a sequel.
