Movie Info

When elegant senior Katherine Mitchell (Linda Thorson) takes a nasty tumble, she reluctantly moves into a retirement home that can look after her during her recuperation. Much to her surprise, she meets a considerate and courtly fellow resident (Stuart Margolin), and their shared love of music makes an unexpected late-in-life romance blossom between them.


Critic Reviews for The Second Time Around

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Sinatra sang that it's more comfortable the second time you fall, Dean Martin sang "that's amore," and Yogi Berra said that it's not over until it's over. Those who get those references are bound to get this film.

A film that's pleasant enough but never achieves the level of emotional resonance that Marr was aiming for.

Take heart, Golden Agers, there is a little gem of a film now playing that should resonate with you as well as all in search of a tender though quirky love story.

If you need a break from aliens, superheroes and explosions, you could do worse.

This story about Katherine and Isaac, two elders who fall in love at a retirement home, could have sunk into saccharine depths, but its authentic take on aging keeps it from making your teeth ache.

It's a pleasant vehicle for Rockford Files veteran Margolin, who's good when his shtick settles in, and especially for Thorson, who still has a nice supply of the screen zip she showed when, daringly enough, she replaced Diana Rigg in The Avengers.
