I did not object to the story idea of an 80 year old woman having a romance with a 20 year old kid, (though he looks more like 14.) I actually liked the story idea, it had a lot of potential.

I like how the two contrast and complement each other in their various ways, Maude to Harold moreso than Harold to Maude though, that would be a criticism of mine.

The age gap between Harold and Maude is over 50 years, which is even more peculiar.
