Give or Take is a winner
16 August 2020 | by day_paul_sSee all my reviews

Give or Take is a refreshing take how people can adjust to a mid-life crisis. The film is easy to watch as the Cape Cod scenes are charming, the music is appealing and the humor is witty. Louis Cancelmi is especially droll is his role as Terrance.

It's easy to relate to this movie because the characters are well cast and believable. The pushy real estate agent, the girl who grew up on the Cape and now tends bar at the trendy town watering hole, the preppy upper cruster buying their beach house trophy home. We've met these people before in our real lives, so they make the plot more authentic and credible.

The film's best quality is watching both Martin and Ted's character evolution. Confronted with loss of life, they thoughtfully challenge their initial assumptions and become more complete people.

Give or Take is movie that will make you smile, laugh and reflect. I strongly recommend it.
