After a full life as a professor teaching at VU , then UCLA , McMaster in USA,Canada and Egypt I find myself at 87, retired and having to totally recreate my life or existence as you will. This film has so much truth in it as well as top flight actors, actresses. I feel sorry for the people who "could not bear the film" or 'want their money back' . They seem like people who wish to avoid life while putting their heads in the sand.
cheesy but likeable film about old people, who need a change in life.
Wonderful movie I watched with my mom who is also "beginning" again. Has laughter, tears, and good advice. Overall, a warm, feel good movie.
a 4 stars!!!, is everybody o.k. ?, I don't think so!, I WANT MY MONEY BACK!, I decided to see this movie because when I saw the trailer I founded funny but no!! it fooled me!!, it was depressing, after 30 minutes I stopped watching it. (think twice before putting money into this)
good movie...strong performances...old people can act as well.
Funny and emotional...but way,way too long.
it was a long movie and that was a positive for me because too many movies are only one and a half long! at 1st i didn't think it was that interesting, but as it progressed i found i was paying more attention, and then it held my attention throughout to the end. it was unique! good dialogue and can't remember if there was swearing or not; i don't think so. that would be neat if there would be a sequel!
this was a movie with great characters and fun which help keep the realities of old age from seeming so overwhelming.
the movie was entertaining from start to finish, and the actors were great.
fantastic journey of old age!
