Jane Fonda. and nothing more.
The basic motif to see the film is Jane Fonda. Seeing it, maybe Wanda Sykes can be the second. But, unfortunately, nothing more. And any dissapointment because Jane Fonda is just her. Maybe, better than Barbarella. So, a nice easy film , making to be together the admirers , for fair and powerful motives , of Jane Fonda and fans of Jennifer Lopez and Michael Vartan. And , sure, a long chain of cliches and few dogs.
