'My Old Lady' Trailer: Kevin Kline Heads Back to Paris But Instead of Meg Ryan, Finds Maggie Smith

By Cindy Davis | Trailers | July 15, 2014 | Comments ()


Wait, I may have given you the wrong idea. You remember French Kiss, right? Meg Ryan’s fiancé leaves her for a gorgeous Parisian, so she heads over to win him back and meets a be-accented Kevin Kline — you know how that goes, right?

This time when Kevin Kline (aka Mathias Gold) goes to Paris, it’s to collect the money from an inherited apartment he intends to sell — only when arrives, someone (not Meg Ryan) is living there. Got it? Oh never mind, just watch the trailer. There’s a mounted bear head guzzling wine! (I’m certain no real bears were harmed during the making of this film.)

It looks a wee bit predictable (obviously Kline falls for Maggie’s daughter, aka Kristin Scott Thomas), but with the delightful combination of witty, funny, cantankerous actors, My Old Lady is sure to be a hoot. My Old Lady trips into theaters September 10th.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) sort of wishes Smith was doing this in character as the Dowager Countess.

  • I will totally watch this one rainy Sunday afternoon and will be completely charmed by it, I'm sure. I have a mad love for French Kiss and watch it any time I see it on. Love. Love. LOVE.

    This reminds me that I need to see A Fish Called Wanda. I remember my folks watching it once when I was a kid and it was clearly hilarious to them. And, now that I'm grown up and am familiar with its cast, I can imagine it must have been.

  • lowercase_ryan

    He should have found Jamie Lee Curtis.

  • SottoVoce

    That's a boar's head, not a bear's. ;)

    This seems like it is based loosely on the real life of Jeanne Louise Calment, who had the longest confirmed human lifespan on record, living to the age of 122 years, 164 days. In 1965, at age 90 and with no heirs, Calment signed a deal to sell her apartment to lawyer André-François Raffray, on a contingency contract. Calment then moved into a nursing home. Raffray, then aged 47 years, agreed to pay her a monthly sum of 2,500 francs until she died, at which point Raffray would own the apartment outright. Raffray ended up paying Calment the equivalent of more than $180,000, which was more than double the apartment's value. After Raffray's death from cancer at the age of 77, in 1995, his widow continued the payments until Calment's death two years later.

    So, I guess Maggie Smith is the Calment character, only she doesn't move out of the apartment.

    I must thank you for bringing Jeanne Louise Calment to my attention! I've just spent a hefty amount of time reading about her life - what a remarkable woman!

  • BWeaves

    You're welcome.

    When she was 120, she told an interviewer that she only had one wrinkle, and she was sitting on it.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    I'm a sucker. I want to see it. But do you know what I love, what stands out to me the most? They cast Scott Thomas, a woman who is older than 25, as a romantic lead.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    A big 'ole YES to that.
    I love a somewhat age appropriate match. Thank god he isn't falling for Smith's granddaughter, played by Megan Fox or something.

  • BWeaves

    YES!!! And she looks gorgeous.

  • Dulce et Banana

    Aww, you know I'm in. Predictable, yes but fun. Scott Thomas has a nice gift for comedy - she and Smith were in a black comedy "Keeping Mum" back in the early 2000's.

    Now, I can't be the only one who pictured Curtis just off camera biting her knuckle and crying with laughter when he did the boot inflate/deflate thing.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I have a weird, weird thing for Kline, which stems from my sick love of Otto. So I'm in no matter what.
    Also, I TOTALLY have French Kiss on in the background as I work, at this moment.

    Pirates of Penzance was in heavy rotation on "The Movie Network" back when that channel was first setup here in Canuckistan

    Yowza! (And, of course, Rex went on to do "Sunset Boulevard" in Toronto against Diahann Carroll's "Norma", stripped to his undies on stage during "The Lady's Paying")

    Most deserved Oscar ever.

    my classmate's aunt makes $68 every hour on the
    computer . She has been fired for 7 months but last month her paycheck was
    $15495 just working on the computer for a few hours. visit the site C­a­s­h­f­i­g­.­C­O­M­

  • Dulce et Banana

    Oh, ruthie, really? Has it come to this? If your poor mother was alive right now to see what you've come to. She and I were the best of friends all through high-school and when she had that spot of trouble in univ - I'd have called it "learning in a group setting" but they chose to call it "cheating" - I was the one who shipped her off to Prague where she was the toast of the literary cafe circuit. Her impressions of Proust eating a peach? Well, there wasn't a dry seat in the house.

    Now, you're here, hawking for your classmate's aunt. I'm betting it's that Mabel Johansson, isn't it? "Quick Buck" Johansson we used to call her. My heart aches, it really really does.
