Thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie as the older woman I am...Though I think Sharon Stone is 60 now and was playing a woman the age of 46 to start out with - a stretch, unless of course YOU ARE THE BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, FUNNY SHARON STONE!
Honestly, the movement of being older, unmarried and close to her mother was an interesting plot in itself. The fact she was "off the grid" as a woman to some degree lent fun and interest to the movie, especially as she slowly but surely was able to resurrect her life and succeed financially. She pulled it off very nicely in my opinion. I'm no "spring chick" either, but I saw the "chapters" of her mid-life for what they were; spliced with humor between her originality if not funkiness and her relationships with her best friend, her mother (also a bit of a diva) and the initially "stuffed shirt" lawyer who thawed out very well with little effort along the way.
Sick to death of the cheap, mundane plots that are merely violent; oversexed and repetitious. Now THAT'S a REAL bore! This sunny picture gave me what I needed and wanted out of this woman's life: A JOURNEY, humor, tenacity, renewal and loving relationships, her Mom, her best friend, her guy, because frankly, that really is? WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT. Kudos Ms. Walters and all for making a fun, E N T E R T A I N I N G movie...For that is SUPPOSE to be? Much of what Hollywood is about - entertainment! Y'all "hit the mark" here.
