Another movie from my wife's shelf. I was expecting a conventional, boring rom-com, but there was definitely more here. It's a good cast with very charismatic leads. Dennis Quaid is the standout here.
What struck me most about this film was it's poignant message. Beneath the rom-com veneer were timeless themes about age and youth. The hubris of youth often discounts the wisdom of age. Young people think they have everything figured out, but they don't.
It's also a commentary on the current corporate culture of dispensing with more expensive older employees - even though said employees carry with them decades of experiences, trials and failures that should be seen as an asset.
Youth wants to "change things up" just for the sake of doing it, but age is more cautious. Now I know that there are seasoned workers who laze about, counting the days to retirement. But the truly hard-working veterans of a company should be revered and consulted.
