In the movie Grumpy Old Men, the main character, John (Jack Lemmon), and his lifelong friend Max (Walter Matthau) personify what it means to be grumpy grandpas. John and Max are both retired widowers who live mostly sedentary lives but enjoy fishing and socializing with family and friends. The characters they play suggest that the tendency to be moody or a grumpy grandpa is a normal part of aging, when in fact, it is not. However, there are some common occurrences as one ages that may impact the ability to participate in everyday activities.
