Mildly engaging but well acted romantic melodrama, especially by James Garner, who received his first and only Best Actor Oscar nomination for playing a small-town pharmacist.

Movie Eye

A quirky May-December romancer that's subtle and low key in its sweetness. Garner and Field make for an unlikely romantic tandem

| Original Score: 4/5

A delightful romantic comedy about a widower and a single parent who learn to listen once again to the promptings of the hearts when love surprises them.
