    A hugely enjoyable romantic comedy that dares to suggest that love can bloom -- and, more important, hormones can rage -- after 50. Smart, sassy and slickly packaged.
  2. However insulting the script is to the formidable talents of Clayburgh and Tambor, they turn in Shinola performances.

    Here's a case of two actors who do everything humanly possible to create characters who are sweet and believable, and are defeated by a screenplay that forces them into bizarre, implausible behavior.

    It's a pleasure to see Jill Clayburgh on the big screen in a story about middle-aged love and sexuality, but she can't rescue this alternately trite and implausible comedy.
  5. 25
    The germ of a better film lies in that joke, but Schaeffer doesn't quite dig it out. Instead, we get painfully unfunny scenes that make us think that when it comes to writing comedy, Schaeffer should stick to his own rule: never again.
  6. A wretched comedy about middle-aged romance.
  7. Rarely does a film so graceless and devoid of merit as this one come along.

    This may be the most poorly written movie I have ever experienced. The dialogue lumbers and each scene is so contrived and nonsensical I kept thinking to myself, "Why, why, why?!" Watch "Something's Gotta Give" instead, a well written, intelligent and funny romantic comedy featuring 50/60 year old characters. Avoid "Never Again". Expand
