Two old men hiking.Old-fashioned but entertaining

"No, writers don't retire.
We either drink ourselves to death or blow our brains out.
And which will it be for you?
After this interview, maybe both."

But, for the type of story being told, I expected more of a poignant message relating to life lessons in older age, or some kind of dramatic through line. None of this really exists, which is a shame. The movie is mildly enjoyable for it's humorous male bonding adventure. Most senior folk will probably like it more just for that reason.
