When three elderly men begin to feel strangely younger trace the source of their newfound vigour to their regular swims they take in the large pool on an abandoned estate next to their retirement home. On closer inspection they discover large pods on the floor of the pool which, they discover, are alien cocoons. Soon the pool is swarming with retirees wanting to regain their youth. When the friendly aliens offer them eternal life if they leave Earth with them, they are faced with the hardest decision of their lives. Howard's second directorial effort was strengthened by a cast of veteran actors.

Fairly classic but, like the cast, showing its age.

Don Ameche won an Oscar for his role in this movie. On the other hand, Steve Guttenberg (of Police Academy, Police Academy 2, Police Academy 3, and Police Academy 4) is also in this. 'Nuff said.

A great Movie by Ron Howard! I just wish the Edmonton Public Library had the sequel to it!
