A romantic comedy about our amazing capacity to rebound and fall in love at any age. Lois, Harry, Marilyn ,Sandy and Jack live in an "Active Adult" community in Boynton Beach, Florida. Their lives intersect when they meet at a local Bereavement Club where they go to find emotional support after the loss of a loved one. For anyone who thinks that new love and romance ends long before retirement, they're in for a reality check. No one sees themselves as becoming old, and the residents of Boynton Beach aren't about to start. But sometimes we all need a little reminder that life is worth living and sharing. Written by
OK, now that I've got your attention. This is actually a very touching movie, in the "In Her Shoes" genre. The screen goddesses I've worshiped have either gotten fat (Brenda Vaccaro, Renee Taylor) or undergo mega plastic surgery (Dyan Cannon). Somehow I just can't turn away but not because it's like a car accident. It's appealing in an honest sort of way. For example, recently widowed Len Cariou brings club vamp Sally Kellerman to an early bird all-you-can-eat buffet on their first date (because that's where he and his wife used to eat). Who hasn't made that mistake trying to impress someone. And Sally Kellerman reprises her topless scene from MASH forty years later (sag and all)...that's got to be forth the price of admission.
Between the hilarious moments in the movie, I couldn't help but think "Didn't Michael Douglas date an older woman Brenda Vaccaro back in the 70s?" or "Didn't Frank Sinatra marry a young Dyan Cannon once?" NOTE: This movie probably won't make any money at the box office but mark my words, it'll probably become a cult classic a decade down the line, like "Office Space".
