Gentle and Touching
1 July 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

It must be said that i cannot resist anything by Walter Matthau in it and thank God i was not proven wrong.This is so easy watching and tender and believe me when i say that former wooden teen hrob John Stamos has just about carried the flick here. You can identify with him and that's just all the premise he needed to perform. Carol Burnett was neatly cast and subdued but it's so good to see her and Walter in a role that allows them to be so relaxed.By the way, Teri G as the Stamos love interest...she can wear those gold tops anyday on a cold morning. All in all ..a gentle,touching and honest film.
