It had the small audience laughing out loud
25 March 2004 | by maggiemarySee all my reviews

I had a bit of trouble catching on to the movie at first, then became very engrossed in it. The documentary within the movie was well done, and though there were only 10 people in the matinee audience, we all roared with laughter many times. All the actors were wonderful. It is a very understated, humourous look at our society and the worship of youth and beauty. I was taken by Brooke Adam's honesty in portraying a woman who is aging well, and thought the relationship between her character and her young daughter was very well drawn. The scenes with her ex-husband and his new, younger girlfriend were funny and touching. The ending was a bit abrupt, but I enjoyed the movie. I would see it again if there were not so many other movies I want to see.
