Goofs

Early in the film, just before John veers into the next lane to avoid a collision, Ella's purse and other items are clearly visible on the ledge above the dashboard. As he strives to correct his steering, it looks like something may have flown out the open window. The purse no longer appears in the next and subsequent frames (leading this viewer to believe that the lost bag would be an essential plot device). However, the purse is clearly in Ella's possession when they make their next stop. See more »

Quotes

John Spencer: Is that really you, Ella?
Ella Spencer: Of course it's me! Who are you?
John Spencer: I'm me! John.
Ella Spencer: No, you're not. My John is a young teacher. It's charming. Very handsome. Educated. I want him back. You stole him from me and want you to give him back.
John Spencer: Oh boy, if I could I would. He was stolen from me, and was stolen from you too.

Loved this movie, I laughed, chuckled, giggled throughout the entire film. I cannot imagine any other actors doing such a great job w/ portraying crazy real life experiences. We all stumble as we move through the ages of life and I felt this movie did it brilliantly!
