WOW!!!
1 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I'm honestly surprised that this isn't one of Shirley's best loved movies. I gave this a ten because of how beautifully she aged and how HOT Stephen Collins was. He now plays the gushy Brady-bunch type dad on the show 7th Heaven but here he was gorgeous. Susan Sarandon and the guy who played Walter were also really good. :) This movie is average, but harmless. I agree with that. But it's good. You look at it and think "WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!" When Susan Sarandon ends up sleeping with Walter and Shirley MacLaine ends up sleeping with Stephan. I mean there's at least a 20 year difference between both of those couples. Still, it was cute to say in the least. I loved it. 9 or 10.
