Storyline

Robert, a general contractor, is visiting his ailing wife in a nursing home. When it's time for him to leave, he has problems getting a taxi home, because of an intense snow storm. Catherine, one of the doctors, offers him a ride. However, because of the snow, their car gets stuck, requiring them to overnight in an empty cabin nearby. They talk and bond, but afterwards seem to have difficulty beginning a relationship. The third, and last, professional collaboration between long-time friends James Garner and Julie Andrews. Written by Paul Hunter aka "Bob the Moo" / revision by TrivWhiz

Chocolate pancakes anyone?
22 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Call me sappy. Call me nostalgic. Call me silly. But I loved it. 2 great actors, one Oscar winner one who should be and an old fashioned relatively moral love story. It evokes a feeling I will never forget and I re-watch it every year. BTW I've never seen any of the supporting cast again and that is disappointing. I also hope James and Julie don't make us wait another 18 years to another film together; they have previously co-starred in The Americanization of Emily and Victor Victoria. Husbands take note about what James Garner remembered the most of his late wife and Julie Andrews' reaction. and after seeing the film have some chocolate chip pancakes in the stars honor.
