Genre: Comedy, Romance
Duration: 1hr 45min
Twenty-eight year-old David is an expert at using his psychological skills to manipulate customers in his job as a luxury car salesman -- and manipulate women in his life as a ladies' man. When David's lonely, widowed grandpa, Joe asks for David's help in reentering the dating world to find a companion, David agrees to teach him all his secret tricks. David takes Grandpa to a singles bar and demonstrates how to arrange a chance encounter to meet a girl, and create an illusion of unavailability because "women always want what they can't have." But, when David literally runs into the intelligent and attractive Julie at a football game, he vows to get her to fall for him. All seems to go well for grandfather and grandson - but both men soon learn that while David's games work well for meeting women, they lack the ability to actually keep a woman around. Grandpa Joe dumps David's strategy, opting for the old-fashioned courtship that worked well for him sixty years earlier. While Joe uses sincerity to get closer to a meaningful relationship with Edna, David's games only make Julie seem increasingly elusive. Will David follow his grandfather's lead? And how will Grandpa Joe fare with both the vivacious free-spirited Edna and the lovely Rose?
