Trivia

Patricia French appears with Diane Keaton, Pam Grier, Rhea Perlman, Phyllis Somerville and Jacki Weaver on the DVD box cover, but her name does not. However Celia Weston's name appears but she doesn't. See more »

Goofs

When Martha is stuck behind a golf cart upon her arrival, the camera cuts to a shot of her in her car from the side - but in this shot she's moving much faster and the background is totally different. It looks like the filmmakers simply inserted a shot from her on the freeway by a mountainside from earlier in the film. See more »

Quotes

Vicki: Now what brings you to Sun Springs?
Martha: Oh I'm just here to die.

Touching , funny, good movie
12 May 2019 | by hipps001See all my reviews

Yes it is formulaic. It's the whole rocky underdog female version.. But it has so many wonderful moments. Diane Keaton is her usual wonderful self.We laughed . We cried. Will it win an Oscar, no . But if you want a touching sweet movie that reaffirms what is important ion life go see this movie.
