I went in thinking this movie would be funny and well written. I was wrong. I was sitting in the theater hoping the movie would just end already.

I was skeptical about this movie because of some of the reviews that I read, but my son (15) and I really liked it. It was funny, heart warming and just a fun movie. It's not going to win any academy awards or anything, but if you are looking for something heartwarming and fun, go see this. I love Barbara Streisand and I thought she played a very good, over protective, doting mother!!

To watch this is to feel pain for these ENORMOUSLY talented actors on the screen. Any problem here is definitely NOT their fault. In fact, they actually brought value to an otherwise amateurish writing effort. This screenplay is just BAD. There is nearly zero empathy or realism to be found in these characters, and at times, you'll feel so disconnected from the action as to find your mind wandering. Not at all an experience worth paying today's high ticket prices for. Big fans of these celebs will want a look see, regardless the quality of the actual movie, but even they should go in imagining that's what they're paying for and then they won't be as disappointed. You might want to wait for the stream, cable or rental with this one. You'll be glad you did.

I didnt have high expectations going in- but came out impressed! Great casting, Barbara and Seth are believable as mother-son, and great plot twists along the way. I took my parents and we all loved it.

From the previews, this looked like it was going to be a smash comedy. My wife and I waited for 6 weeks from the time we saw the previews. About 3/4 of the way through it, she was
sleeping, as I saw other movie patrons getting up to walk out. This movie was a huge disappointment.
