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.

MacLaine and Lange are terrific together. It wouldn't seem so given their individual careers and past performances. The movie itself is very nice. There are contrivances. But, a lot of movies do these days. The two lead actresses have great chemistry together. I would hope that more people will find the movie, and enjoy it. I was a little ahead of the story at one point, and hoping my thoughts would not come true. But, they did. Still, by that point, I'd bought into the movie. In other reviews, they talk about the script. The other characters could have been better written and fleshed out. So, I agree somewhat with the negative reviews. I would recommend the movie as something nice to watch on an afternoon.
