Not a waste of time
6 October 2019 | by Simply-RedSee all my reviews

I'm just reinforcing the 6 rating at the time I reviewed this. For women, especially mothers of adult children who can handle a rated "R" movie and all that can come with, this flick is probably an 8. For men, its tolerable to watch with your wife...not horrible.

Some adult beverage, if you imbibe, for me was very helpful in enjoying the flick, but I did find my thoughts drifting a bit toward the end of movie. It did get to a point where I was a bit tired of the mother's...blah, blah, blah...whine, snivel, blah. We get it. You know, men also dont enjoy getting older, we just dont complain about it as much!

There is a reason many adult children enjoy life without their parents around and obligatorily visit, then return to their lives. "Cats in the Cradle and the silver spoon" as the song goes. It was correct then, and still is today. This is just a movie about women who lament it and have nothing better to do than be a pain to their kids...out of the blue and uninvited.

Some good lessons of course, the movie has merit.
