  • 1 star "Just bought it on DVD. Watched it the first time. Don't know why I wasted the money. Lily Tomlin as usual did a poor job. This time even her supporting actors couldn't even save this movie."
  • 5 stars "fantastic film, so refreshing to see a smart, sharp, witty film with female protagonists. So far, best film I've seen in 2015"
  • 5 stars "Spunky grandma guiding her grandchild hilariously through a few of life's perils is this theatrical voyage. Witty sarcasm delightfully interposed at just the right junctures of this movie. I did not experience a waste of time to see myself reflected in the artistic joy of this film. Unfortunately, this was not seen in Canada, but the border was near."
