Storyline

Richard Eason is flat-out filling his late father's shoes as CEO of an east Coast real estate developing company, so he can't spend nearly as much time with mother Annie and daughter Ella as they would like. Annie is dead-set on visiting a place in California where she and her late husband hoped to build their dream house and convinces Ella, who wants to drop out of school and aspires a singing career, to drive along. Ill-prepared but tempestuously stubborn, they embark on an adventurous road trip, where Ella meets hunky waiter Scott Tardy. Learning Annie needs surgery soon, Richard gives chase.

Annie's Point Comes to a Fork Road **1/2
25 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Annie (Bette White) wants to disperse her husband's ashes at a locale in California that they had named Annie's Point. Annie needs a bypass immediately and she wants to send out the ashes on her 50th wedding anniversary.

The plot is seemingly ridiculous and White recruits her song-loving granddaughter to accompany her on this cross country trip. The film has shades of Geraldine Page's "The Trip to Bountiful." Problem is that it isn't half as good.

With the kerchief tied around her head, White looks like an elderly Russian babushka (grandmother.) If you need a bypass, you don't go running around the country. Take it from me.

Richard Thomas plays Annie's son. He has inherited the business and tries to be a work, work, work sort of guy. He is also a widower.

The film centers on the adventures of Annie and granddaughter. She affectionately calls her Ella-bear.

There is a scene when the two land in jail for trespassing and a nostalgic meeting with Annie's brother. The latter, 20 years younger than Annie, has not seen his sister in nearly 30 years.

We've seen so much of this material before handled a lot better.
