Movie Info

After losing his job David is pushed by his roommate to hire a life coach named Joyce. A decision aided in part by how pretty David finds this life coach, but also a desire to get unstuck in life. When Joyce invites him to join the volunteer group she takes to a retirement home David discovers his manipulative ex-boss, William, is part of the group and interested in Joyce as well. The motley crew of retirees instantly recognize the potential for drama with this love triangle. A wily old man goads the boys to battle for Joyce. As a result, David begrudgingly agrees to go to an open mic night Joyce holds for people to ponder the existence of God. It's there that a poet says a few things that cause David's head to tilt and move him a little further down the path of finding himself. The problem is the ungentlemanly competition he's still in with William. When that turns extreme, David makes a decision that nearly ruins his dual-level progress with Joyce. He's then forced to turn to the only community he has left, the ragtag band of retirees who point him in the direction of true north. A uniquely faith-friendly romantic comedy starring Grammy Award winner Rebecca St. James and Academy Award winner Shirley Jones. (c) Official site

This blandly formulaic romantic comedy doesn't deliver on its titular promise.

There's nothing strange about David's happiness - and nothing compelling either.

90 minutes of incompetent filmmaking
