Slow but rewarding ride
3 August 2019 | by anthonyjlangfordSee all my reviews

If you're old, life isn't over. That's the crux of the story. It has a big heart and it eventually wins you over.

Sure it's slow. Yes it's pretty unrealistic. And it can be cheesy at times, but for the most part, it's a touching story of trying to fulfill your dream at any age.

Richard Dreyfuss, as always, is great. His performance holds it all together, though there are some other good performances too.

Leading a fulfilling life is important but it's not all about your dreams. It's those who surround us who make it truly worthwhile. Ultimately, it's about family.
