The Leisure Seeker

Critics Consensus

The Leisure Seeker certainly doesn't suffer from any shortage of acting talent, but it's largely squandered on a predictable, diffuse drama with little to say.

  • [The Leisure Seeker] is a predictable scenario. It can't be anything else. But these two great talents invest it with humanity and courage in the face of its inescapable home truths.

  • A funny and truthful look at growing old together.

  • Plenty of scope, then, for tragedy and comedy, but Paolo Virzi's film is neither profoundly sad nor uproariously funny. It just trundles along in a cocoon of modulated mediocrity, like the Spencers in their Leisure Seeker.

  • I found it sucrose and glib.

  • There are quieter moments during which the glances between Sutherland and Mirren -- containing memories better left unvoiced -- suggest something worthier than the dreck they're trapped in.

  • "The Leisure Seeker" deserves credit for tackling a difficult subject. Unfortunately it comes packaged in a clumsy road movie headed the wrong way down the highway.
