PG-13

I'm Not Rappaport is 1996 comedic drama written and directed by Herb Gardner and based on his original play. The film stars Walter Matthau, Ossie Davis, Amy Irving, Craig T. Nelson, Martha Plimpton, Peter Friedman and Ron Rifkin. I'm Not Rappaport's plot follows the lives of two captivating characters in New York City who comment on all of the injustices that surround them. Nat Moyer (Walter Matthau), a cantankerous white Jew, and Midge Carter (Ossie Davis), a feisty African-American, meet ever day at Central Park and spend their time sitting on a bench, trying to mask the horrible realities of aging, mainly through the tall tales that Nat spins. The story touches on several very serious issues, including society's treatment of the aging, the difficulties dealing with adult children who think they know what's best for their parents, and the dangers that lurk in urban areas. When Midge, who is half-blind, but still the super of an apartment house, is threatened with forced retirement, Nat battles on his behalf.
