Good....but..... Not Good Enough .
14 January 2005 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

Yes,this was quite unfortunately Ms. Hepburn's last starring vehicle. What a shame it is too! Despite a daring storyline and plot about elderly people who no longer want to live,the second 1/2 of this film gets hopelessly lost!

It loses it's direction and in a sense...chickens out from it's bold stance on assisted suicide and or mercy killings. While I don't favor such acts,I thought that Ms. Hepburn and all involved were making some sort of statement here.

Later she,regrets her act of helping her friends die by turning in the man she hired! The continuity of the film seems disrupted as well by shoddy editing and dialouge. At least she got to be in 1994's Love Affair.

A short appearance but 100% better than this! In one part of this Nick Nolte is looking all over the city for her and incredibly finds her on the roof of a building! What did he do? Go to the roof of every building in the city?!

By the end of this I can't tell if they regret what they've done or are okay with it! When I found this at my local Blockbuster Video,I considered it a stroke of luck but I guess I should have known by how dusty it was (and yes it honestly was!)that it hadn't been watched for a reason.

I love Ms. Hepburn's acting and I don't blame her for this fiasco nor Mr. Nolte. She's great as always but the second 1/2 does no justice to her abilities. I blame the writers,the producers,the directors and the studio especially for not shelving this embarrassment to an otherwise great actress and Hollywood legend! Avoid at all costs,unless you "really" love Katharine Hepburn so much,you'll watch her in anything!
