In an era when many motion pictures are going for 'big,' it's nice to see well-known actors in a 'small' film like this.

It has barely enough wisdom to fill a fortune cookie but it's no pain to sit through.

The charms of the performances and the likable, subtle comic driftings can be quite stimulating.
