Don't come looking for social realism. This is an unapologetically fluffy film.

Keaton's terrific, and it's sweet and airy and so unhurried you really feel like you've had a nice afternoon in the long grasses and cool breezes on the edge of the city. You wouldn't want to live there, though.

Much as we love romantic comedies about older-age couples, this over-formulated dollop of treacle makes you pine for the hijinx of It's Complicated.
