In this modern comedy, two long-time golf-buddies, realize their best days may be quickly passing them by as older age sets in. To combat these feelings, they decide to take off on a weekend journey to let loose and re-live the Palm Springs get-a-ways of their younger days … as much as their aging bodies will let them. The hysterical hijinx in this film begs the question, “If fifty is the new thirty then why do my knees ache? Laughs are aplenty in this comedy of age comedy about the coming of age.
Thom Johnston has directed a very clever and touching film. It is well written by Drew Pillsbury, who also stars in it, Martin Gottleib, and Thom. Granted, sometimes it's predictable, but often it caught me totally by surprise, and I totally enjoyed the ride it took me on. The performances are great. I found myself wondering why I haven't seen more of the two male leads. Wendie Malick is her usual fantastic self; carrying herself with such grace and style, and yet able to be vulnerable at the same time. She's truly a talent. I think Mr. Johnston's direction is quite good; clearly he knows how to tell a story well on film. I look forward to more by him.
