Never Too Late Reviews

November 12, 2020
A sweet, congenial, low-flying oldies-behaving-badly comedy that works well on a mild vibe... A bit more drive in the plot might have heightened the adventure, broadened the comedy and expanded the film's appeal to people under 50.

Spirited performances drive the good-natured mischief for a while, although the film struggles to balance the broad humor with any nostalgic value or meaningful sentiment.

While "Never Too Late" goes for a few too many old-folk chuckles, it also aims to probe the serious.

Never Too Late undermines reality so often that the attempts at conveying authentic pain, longing, and sorrow start to feel schmaltzy.

An engaging cast makes it tolerable, but it ends up no more distinctive than its banal title.

While it's generally a pleasure to see stalwarts like Cromwell, Weaver and Jack Thompson (as one of the old gang) at work, one also wishes they had found, well, better work.
