An adorable, touching comedy
28 September 2000 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

Tuesday Weld and Ellen Burstyn are at their best in this very well made and likeable mix of light comedy and drama. Tuesday is the gorgeous older women who comes into Patrick Cassidy's life, upsetting Mama Ellen. Eli wallach offers fun support, in this adult comedy you'll love.
