Did You Know?


The roles of Diane and Vivian were written for Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda right from the start. See more »


When Mitchell steps out of the cockpit to talk to Diane, he commits several violations of the Code of Federal Regulations. Since shortly after 9/11 there has a requirement to follow a security protocol which includes verifying that there is no one besides the crew near the door and blocking the aisle in some manner. In this case, Mitchell simply steps out into the cabin. When he returns to the flight deck, he knocks on the door and they immediately open it for him without any sort of verification. To make matters worse, the flight attendant walks away leaving no one there to block the aisle as he re-enters the cockpit. Additionally, a flight crewmember is only allowed to leave his seat for operational or physiological reasons, neither of which is the case here. See more »


[Sharon enters the house]
Sharon: My son is engaged and my husband is in Maui with a tartlet named Cheryl.
Diane: Oh.
Sharon: I need a drink.
Carol: Your 'husband'?
Diane: You can't possibly still care about what Tom is doing.
Sharon: I don't care. But the guy gets seasick in a swimming pool. I mean, what the hell is he doing in Maui?
Vivian: Sounds like he's doing Cheryl in Maui.
Sharon: Oh, please. Who gets involved in a relationship at 67? I mean, what is the point?
Vivian: Oh, the point is to get laid. It's always the point.

User Reviews

Really disappointed, hoped for more of a message
6 June 2018 | by meezer3See all my reviews

It was my husband of 54 years idea to see this movie, having only gone on the information of just who was in it.. but not having any idea what it was about. He turned to me, half way through and said "This is a girls movie"... da And I only went because HE wanted to see it. I think he thought it was more on the lines of the movie "Somethings Gotta Give". I love all but one (Jane Fonda) of the actresses in this movie. Being that I am the same generation of most of them I thought I could relate to the subject matter these women seemed to be encountering...but, aside from a few laughs, the message it conveyed to me made me depressed, not happy and I left the theater sadder then I went in. Maybe its because times have changed to much for me to see the "fun" in message they are trying to convey here. Online dating, sex on the first date,etc It may be the "thing" to do for the younger, high tech generation but I like the old school ways. (Obviously, having been married this long) I like to think that I keep up with the times and I understand looking for love and a partner to share life with but to begin your search by reading a soft porn book to "light your fires again" just turned me -off-. I think we are better then that. Sorry, this one is -not- a keeper. To bad, I was hoping for more from this.
