This is what grandmas do to find love? LOL! Anyway, happy but a tad sad to see those iconic actresses playing their age as loveless senior citizens. As the end credits rolling, there was a still shot of the foursome in their youth, possibly photo shopped, and was followed by the women posing for this film in the same setting. It is apparent that they lived good lives being young "Spring flowers" and now as well aged "potpourri."

An interesting premise and four wonderful actresses can't save this script from being 50 shades of terrible.

I love all these actors. Fab women showing us slightly younger ones that you can still be smart vital, fun and fun-loving and also graceful, wonderful and beautiful as well. Too bad the script was dull, boring and predictable. These gals deserve SO much better that this. The audience deserves so much better than dumb gags, clich├ęs and flat characters. I know good writers are out there- probably too busy working for Netflix and Amazon shows.

I know that some people may find this movie entertaining. I did not. I don't think that a movie cast with good actresses in their 60's, 70's and eighties being fools to their sexual appetites is funny. It actually made me angry watching Candice Bergen make an absolute fool of herself, Jane Fonda trying too hard to be sexy, Mary Steenburgen being so horny that she puts Viagra in her husbands food unbeknownst to him which results in one of the most lamentable scenes in the movie and Diane Keaton being a simpering annoying little girl woman.
This movie sets a tone that feels like a way back machine when it was okay with some people to believe the lie that women were only content when they were satisfied and partnered up with someone.
I gave it half a star for Andy Garcia who kept his dignity.
I am not a prig or a killjoy. This movie sets a low bar.

The comment that said this movie must be geared towards the older generation must be correct because there are a lot of us out there and this movie was so funny. Not all movies have to have depth; sometimes you just want to be entertained with humour. When you have lived and experienced a fairly long life then you can see how really funny this movie is. It definitely wasn't saying that you need a man to be happy but rather you can still be an attractive and independent older woman. I give this movie 5 stars because I laughed all the way through.

I didn't expect a lot from this movie and was pleasantly surprised. All rom-coms have a certain level of predictability to them, and this one was fairly typical in that regard, but I thought it was a lot of fun and I laughed a lot. It was quite enjoyable to see these familiar favorite actresses in a scenario of empowering their "senior" romantic selves in the modern climate of cell phones, internet dating, and "50 Shades of Grey." Candice Bergen in particular was especially fun to watch, but I thought they all did a good job.

I'm probably not the target age for this movie (I'm mid 40's) but man, was this BORING. Total fluff and no real story line that I cared about. I found the whole story line with Mary Steenburgen and Craig T. Nelson cringe inducing and insulting to couples who are dealing with the issues their characters were dealing with....actually, I could say the same about Diane Keaton's character as well.

Meh. I agree with others that this was a waste of talented actors. Characters had no depth, and "happy ending" indicates that women must all be partnered to be happy. Some hard to believe moments: Candice Bergen's character is a judge and somehow can't figure out how to take a picture of herself (or not) for online dating. Diane Keaton's character dressed exactly like Diane Keaton! And her adult children didn't think she was capable of driving cross country or living alone--why?? She wasn't showing signs of dementia or anything. I could keep going, but will end with wishing a really smart movie about smart women could have been made instead.
