Goofs

When Eva and Maddie are taken to their hotel after arriving at Gran Canaria airport, you distinctly see them being chauffeured through the middle of the island's capital Las Palmas, passing the famous Santa Ana cathedral before eventually getting to the hotel. This would be an unusual route to take to travel from the airport to the Lopesan Costa Meloneras hotel where the filming took place, as downtown Las Palmas is about 13 miles to the north from the airport, and the Costa Meloneras is more than 20 miles in the exact opposite direction, at the southern end of the island.

Quotes

Waitress: Hi! What can I get for you ladies today?
Maddie: Would you... date someone in their sixties?
Waitress: I'm sorry?
Eva: Er... French toast. That really looked good.
Maddie: Would you go out with a man in his sixties. It's a simple question. My husband just left me for someone who could be your twin.
Waitress: Oh my god. Are you Maddie Reynolds?
Maddie: Yeah.
Waitress: My friend Clarissa just moved in with your ex-husband.
Maddie: [is distraught] Oh my god.
Eva: We shall have a Spanish omelet.

great start fizzles out
5 October 2016 | by chodorovSee all my reviews

I was so happy to see a movie with such a fantastic cast of old people - I especially love Shirley MacLain and Billy Connolly, and the rest of the cast was also good. However, the script went from mediocre to really bad, the plot was worse, and the whole thing nose-dived in the second half. Which is a shame, it had such potential. No wonder it never opened in the theaters. I wish they would redo it, write a decent plot with an improved script, and re-release it next year. They would only have to do the second half. The movie starts out with MacLain and Lange at the funeral of MacLain's husband. It goes on to show the widow receive a falsely made out check from his life insurance. One of the best scenes in the whole movie is her calling the insurance company to try to straighten out the mistake. Then the story already starts to go downhill. Why doesn't she just deposit the check without worrying about being arrested? Or just send it back and ask for a correct one with a payment of $50,000 instead of 5 million? Everything is overdone with no reason behind it. And it just gets steadily worse with very little good stuff in between. It is not even worth watching for the actors, as the script is abominable.
