Take a look:
Well, I’m feeling a bit mixed and so is my family. First of all, I had no idea (SPOILER) that the main character has cancer and when she made the choice to move to the retirement home “to die” she meant it literally. I was excited about watching a movie with older woman and having a good laugh. I laughed and cried. It certainly was not what I expected and even though there were plenty of laughs, I still had expected more from this cast and crew. Yes, the story does prove that it is never too late to follow your dreams, but the script fell a bit flat for me. The actors are all amazing in their portrayal of the characters, although the script was lacking in depth. Would I watch it again? Yes. Did I cry? Yes. Truth be told, I wanted to laugh more and wasn’t ready for the heartache. I will give it another chance. If the opportunity arises take a chance and watch it. Let me know what you think!
