Cute -- see it if for nothing else for those actors who are no longer with us and who shared our lives in their prime. Other than that, it's predictable and expected.

Best movie I've seen in a long time.

Don't wast your time with this one. Poor acting, weak plot.

Predictable . Neither all that funny, nor particularly engaging. Especially if you've seen the preview. A costume sitcom. Good talent wasted.

Fair – The Golden Boys (2008) 97 min. This looks like but isn’t a CBC production about three men trying to find a wife for one of the men in the early stages of the 20th century. David Carradine, Bruce Dern and Rip Torn. The focus of their attention is played by Mariel Hemingway. The film moves rather slowly but has a certain charm that warrants a look.
