Unfortunately the film, directed by Leon Marr needs more pep in its step, could use some judicious trimming and... features an unmemorable, under-drawn group of resident seniors, a missed opportunity to help flesh out... this slender, tender tale.
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.
This heartwarming tale keeps its narrative sweet and simple as it explores a brand of love that rarely makes its way to the silver screen.
[A] gently exuberant and inspiring mature romancer. Nevertheless, the main ingredients that allow The Second Time Around to effectively resonate are its two veteran leads in the always radiant Linda Thorson and spunky Stuart Margolin.
The script isn't as good as they are, but they're very good indeed.
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.
