Watchable, enjoyable fluff for grown ups
21 December 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

By grown ups, I don't mean that it's rude. More mature. I had heard that this was a good film, and I had been searching for it for some time, so was delighted to fall over it in a bargain bin locally, and bought it when I probably shouldn't have. However, it did while away a surprisingly long couple of hours, and was a pleasant bit of fluff.

I have a lot of time for Olympia Dukakis and Ellen Burnstein, so I was a bit disappointed that the one was so miserable and the other was a bit dim - OK so she's been married for ever, but she surely didn't live under a stone with her husband? I would have thought that the way she was smuggled into the hotel room made her look more like a prostitute than anything, and I felt sorry for her having to make her way out alone in the morning. Having said that, I was delighted that she reconciled with her new man before the end.

One absolute joy was Selma (Zelma?) who was the perpetual bride, tacky and brash as all get out, but completely lovable.

A nice movie.
