Appreciate it for what it is, not what you want it to be!
All the comments seem really critical of this film calling it the worst Stallone film ever... You obviously haven't seen many of his films. Treat the film as the light hearted comedy/ romance it was obviously meant to be and stop trying to find the Stallone box office smash you expect every time.
The story could be improved slightly, but as a film dedicated to the life of Anthony Quinn I found it quite moving. Try to remember, not everyone always wants to see long drawn out complicated 3 hour films that leave you wondering what just happened. It is nice just to kick back and watch something easy going. I think to cast Stallone as Frankie in this film was a stroke of genius. Nothing like the films he has done of late which all have him as some burn't out over the hill character. Madeline is always a pleasure to watch if for nothing more than her ability to light up the screen. I gave the film 10 out of 10 for being good within it's own boundaries.
