The fact that “Gerontophilia” is immediately palatable is what makes its creators’ perspective that much more inviting. This is a comedy that encourages viewers to be impulsive, and pointedly seek love and acceptance outside of “normal” social institutions, especially when it comes to family and romance. It’s about cherishing impulsivity over introspection, and amassing life experiences without fear of negative consequences.

“Gerontophilia” is enjoyable because it has softer edges that do nothing to diminish its hard core. It’s an inclusive comedy that is also radical in its insistence that you don’t need to distinguish between what your head and your groin want.
