In several interviews, Susan Walter explains how she originally wrote a coming of age comedy about a 25 year old woman. Because she wanted somebody tough and vibrant to play the mother, she sent the script to Sharon Stone. Sharon called her and said : "No, no, no. Don't make it a coming of age comedy about somebody in their twenties. Been there. Done that. Make it about a woman in her fifties and now you have something fresh. I'm not playing the mother...I'm playing the lead!" See more »
During the beach scene where Senna says she's going to stay for the sunset, the sun has almost set then it's back up in the sky. Then later in the scene it's even higher in the sky. See more »

Stone & Goldwyn Have Good Chemistry But Just a Fair Rating For the Film As A Whole
The chemistry between Sharon Stone and Tony Goldwyn works pretty well here, but I'm wondering, as other reviewers have mentioned, why first time writer and director Susan Walter chose to initially present Stone as a 46-year-old? Since Goldwyn is soon to be 58 in real life just two years her junior (as Stone is 60) , wouldn't it have been even more real and effective to start out presenting Stone's character Senna as a 56-year-old woman, who ages per the film's main premise. She is still so vivacious and beautiful that, at least in my mind, this would have enhanced the film even more.
Overall, I thought parts of this movie were charming and effective while other parts fell flat and were just not believable. Also, the characters were too surfacy for my tastes and never really developed fully. So, a mixed bag for me here and only a fair rating.
