Blythe Danner proving she still got it..
6 June 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

But I got to admit, I did not know she had it in the first place.

Blythe Danner for me is usually recognized as the very attractive significant other when older actors want to pretend on screen that they are interested in age appropriate women.

But Danner is a very sexy, charming woman and she gets to show all of this in her leading role in this film. It's a strangely realistic look at what romance looks like in those golden years with Sam Elliot as Danner's love interest, a man who proves he still got the heat himself at his advanced aged.

Also liked seeing Rhea Perlman in the flick as one of Danner's aging friends in the movie. She plays a woman living in a senor citizens home, which I found hard to swallow. She showed far too much energy on the screen.

It's a good romantic comedy for any age but a lot more than what it's sold to be. For the most part, it's about a woman who's just going through a mood and this can happy to anyone at any age.
