Storyline

Not so aged widow Thelma Caldicot is coerced into a resthome by her manipulative son and daughter-in-law after the death of her bullying husband. Apathy turns to anger and then action as the medication is discarded and Thelma discovers her mettle. She and her aged cohorts stage a rebellion but the result is something nobody envisaged.

Cabbage is better
28 January 2004 | by (Greenock, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is a dreadful waste of celluloid. A trite, unfunny collection of stereotypes with no humour or true feeling.

The targets are easy but this film still manages to miss them

Even with the flu and trapped on the sofa watching the box with no concentration this was still not up to par
