User Reviews

Really disappointed, hoped for more of a message
6 June 2018 | by meezer3See all my reviews

It was my husband of 54 years idea to see this movie, having only gone on the information of just who was in it.. but not having any idea what it was about. He turned to me, half way through and said "This is a girls movie"... da And I only went because HE wanted to see it. I think he thought it was more on the lines of the movie "Somethings Gotta Give". I love all but one (Jane Fonda) of the actresses in this movie. Being that I am the same generation of most of them I thought I could relate to the subject matter these women seemed to be encountering...but, aside from a few laughs, the message it conveyed to me made me depressed, not happy and I left the theater sadder then I went in. Maybe its because times have changed to much for me to see the "fun" in message they are trying to convey here. Online dating, sex on the first date,etc It may be the "thing" to do for the younger, high tech generation but I like the old school ways. (Obviously, having been married this long) I like to think that I keep up with the times and I understand looking for love and a partner to share life with but to begin your search by reading a soft porn book to "light your fires again" just turned me -off-. I think we are better then that. Sorry, this one is -not- a keeper. To bad, I was hoping for more from this.
