    This film is so fake. A shame because actresses like Angela Bassett and Whoopi Goldberg is one of my fav's but too bad they were in this. Such a waste.

    Great cast about a 40 plus stock broker on vacation in Jamaica.

    not bad for a chick flick

    Likeable chick-flick that mainly deals with whether a relationship can work around a 20 year age difference. It even chucks in "best friend dying of cancer" half way through but still manages to stay upbeat about it. And it's surprisingly well shot. But I had to remove half a star because there's a desperate rush to the airport at the end.
