“..you may find yourself cutting this disappointingly shallow film some extra slack..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
4 of 5

“..there are many bits and pieces in the drama that will be instantly recognizable and universally identifiable as signs of aging..”
by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice]
1.5 of 4

“..the result is a comedy-drama that's depressingly superficial, corny and entirely predictable. In short, Late Bloomersis blooming awful..”
by Don Groves [sbs.com.au]
“..that movies crafted to pander to older viewers..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..suffers from a stridently jaunty jazz score, and some gags that don't rise above sitcom level..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
3.5 of 5

“..successfully blended the funny with the sad to create something of a rarity: a rom-com that actually has something to say..”
by Matthew Pejkovic [Matt's Movie Reviews]

“..over the course of a drawn-out 90 minutes, this long-married couple fights, separates and reconciles, though their prickliness is decidedly diluted..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
3 of 4

“..moves at a poky pace even by American indie standards..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2.5 of 5

“..at least there isn't a laugh track..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..all chirped about by a Greek chorus of familiar BBC faces..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B-

“..a little too easy, but its cast makes it worth a look, even so..”
by Alison Willmore [AV Club]
