Everything changes for Eva when she receives a life insurance check accidentally made out for $5,000,000 instead of the expected $50 thousand. She and her best friend take the money and head out for the adventure of a lifetime.
A retired widow who hits the jackpot when she receives a life insurance check mistakenly made out for $5,000,000 instead of $50.000. She and her best friend then take off, only to become media sensations and fugitives from justice.
The movie was shot in Gran Canaria, Spain. One of the producers, Nicolas Veingerb said that his family had ties with Gran Canaria since his grandfather used to vacation there before moving from Russia to Argentina. See more »
I have listened to your bullshit for much longer than I want to listen to bullshit. I didn't teach tenth grade students for thirty five years for nothing. I could tell when they were lying even when they didn't know it!

This charming well written comedy caper could easily have been painful and unfunny but it is actually quite good and laugh out loud funny in parts. The 2 actresses Jessica Lange and Shirley Maclaine are so good they are watchable and never cringe inducing. It's good to see Jessica doing comedy again - she has been in horror for the last few years with AHS so it's nice to see what a good comedienne she is. Shirley is quite nimble for her age - she is over 80 and can still do comedy convincingly.
A widow gets a mistaken windfall payout and sets off on a exotic trip with her best friend. Some stand out moments include crassness of people at the funeral. The part dealing with calling the insurance company rings familiar for many.
The location in Gran Canaria is quite exotic and the resort is attractive.
Worth a watch.
