    Who else is making movies like this? Can't wait for her new one with Julia Louis-Dreyfus later this year.

    Hadn't seen this since high school! Now I am the same age as the women in the movie--who were the same age as my parents then. I watched it with my son, who got a kick out of it, but wondered why people were smoking in restaurants. Movies like this have a funny way of marking time.

    It's exactly what you think it's going to be and that's fine. I don't think it's going to stick with me but it was very enjoyable to unwind with on a Friday night.

    Went to see this with my son, daughter, and Samantha Parkington. All seemed to enjoy it and a good antidote to post-holiday malaise.
