  • When you've got three of the nation's best actresses in leading roles, it doesn't matter if your script is only adequate and the audience really has to squint here and there to believe what's happening on the screen. show more

  • Bonneville does provide at least one important service: The next time an older actress complains that there are no good projects for women of a certain age, she'll be able to hold this clunker up as Exhibit A. show more

  • Put three old friends in a convertible for a cross-country road trip to a loved one's funeral, and what do you get? Very few surprises, in this feel-good fluff that, despite offering nothing novel, could do well with older audiences who rightly feel that too few films are being made with them in mind. show more

    This was an awesome movie. I am 49 years old and went with my 10 year old granddaughter and my 68 year old mother. We all loved it and couldn't help but talk about it later. I kept looking to see it in more movie houses and ask people if they have seen it, but no. It is worth seeking out to see.

    Was so fortunate to preview this movie with 1700 red hatters and all appreciated this dilemma and road trip. Three diverse women who had incredible ties, appreciation and respect for each other. Can't wait until it gets to my area to view again. Of age? Look at the demographics and find where today's audiences and $$$s are!
