Trivia

Every time Marnie's driving in her car, she's listening to Beyonce. See more »

Goofs

When Zipper gives Marnie a ride on his Harley, they leave Du-Par's Restaurant in the Fairfax neighborhood heading north on Fairfax, then in the next shot are shown going north on Van Nuys Blvd. crossing Magnolia Blvd., which is over ten miles north in the San Fernando Valley. After that brief shot, they are shown sitting on a bench south of the Santa Monica Pier. Santa Monica is nearly due west of the Fairfax area. Unless the BMW dealership in Sherman Oaks paid for a product placement, there's no reason for them to have gone so far north. See more »

Quotes

Zipper: [Talking about his chicken] You wanna meet her?
Marnie: At your house?
Zipper: Well, she's been out at the bar most of the night but she's probably home by now.

It's charming!
2 October 2018 | by lauramccullochSee all my reviews

I'm going to go against the grain here, but I think this is a charming little money that gives you a few laughs. It's essentially about a widow and mother who uses her money to help people she doesn't really know that well but who shes formed a connection with. It's not going to blow your mind but it's feel good...
