* CriticalDissonance: Critics didn't rate it very well (18% on Rotten Tomatoes), but fan reviews are much kinder (6.6/10 on IMDB).
* ContestedSequel: Is it [[{{Sequelitis}} worse than]], better than, or about the same as the first one?
* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: The main reason for it's CriticalDissonance and ContestedSequel status. The plot of ''Grumpier Old Men'' is nearly identical to the first film. Some are fine with this, others are not.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Grandpa's death]].
-->'''John:''' [[spoiler:Looks like God remembered you, Pop]].
