This movie is a total waste of time and money. Basically it's about this stupid old man who dreams of making it with young women.

Di Gregorio's dialogue and performers are once again marked by a spontaneity and ease; who else working today treats so-called "middle age" with such jocular honesty? Full Review

Slant Magazine
A dry dream of postmenopausal-male sexual lethargy, this comedy's least musty ideas are among its worst. Full Review
Calvin Wilson
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Episodically structured and lethargically paced, the new film attempts to convince us that there's something incredibly charming about an old guy who makes a habit of ogling young women. Actually, the whole scenario is pretty creepy. Full Review

Unfortunately, he's retained his previous work's touristy mondo italiano! vibe, all whimsical tunes and postcard scenery, while piling on enough ogling shots of nubile young women to make Hugh Hefner feel uncomfortable. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Rueful, funny and wise, The Salt of Life is a comedy not of errors but of the tiniest of missteps. A warm yet melancholy film of quiet yet inescapable charm, it has a feeling for character and personality that couldn't be more delicious. Full Review
