I cannot understand why anyone would say otherwise because there is not a dull moment in this movie as it has a bit of everything, from laughing to crying because the actors are able to have you feel what they are portraying.
It is a movie about accepting others for who they are and most importantly it is about forgiveness and learning to enjoy life.
I must add what wonderful acting there is from all of the entire crew. Anytime a movie can pull you in to the point of being able to feel their emotions then you know that they have done a great job.
Jane Fonda is just terrific. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was as amazing as he always is. I have to add how cute Chance Crawford is.
It is a great reminder that sometimes we all need to slow down and take a look around us and just enjoy the moment we are in.
