Unfortunately, this sweet and homey picture which casts two very decent actors (Sally Field and James Garner) in two very decent roles, falls far short of compelling filmmaking.

A depressing barometer of contemporary Hollywood.

Mr. Garner and Miss Field are able comic actors, but they can't be much better than the corny material, the occasional one-liners and an overall sunniness that refuses to set.

The picture just lumbers along, lightly propelled by a series of contrived conflicts ... and anecdotal observations that don't add up to much.

Martin Ritt directs the screenplay by Harriet Frank Jr. and Irving Ravetch, who cross the country wisdom of Tennessee Ernie Ford with the stale wit of the Johnny Carson joke team.
February 29, 2016
Director Martin Ritt and screenwriters Harriet Frank, Jr., and Irving Ravetch rely too heavily on little vignette sequences to move the narrative, a technique that quickly becomes tedious and predictable.

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