Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of Gran Canaria, where the movie takes place, was ranked as the city with the best climate in the world in a 1996 scientific study called "Pleasant Weather Ratings" by Thomas Whitmore, director of research on climatology at Syracuse University, New York.

She is completely confused. You can't arrest her. That would... that would be like executing a retarded person.
I mean a really really sweet one.

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.
