“..writer-director Joel Hopkins, who was more successful with the Thompson-Dustin Hofman middle-aged romance "Last Chance Harvey," just can't make this creaky premise work..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..the truth is that it's the audiences who will wind up sobbing at this waste of Brosnan and Thompson's talents, with no bittersweet smiles in the end..”
by Richard Ouzounian [Toronto Star]

“..the movie, which feels like something made back in the late 1960s or early '70s, is so relentlessly silly it's hard to watch without a lot of eye-rolling..”
by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald]
2.5 of 5

“..neither is there anything especially compelling. In the context of this cast, another descriptive word comes to mind: disappointing..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
