Goofs

The central characters say (two times) that they are buying an apartment on 1st Avenue and 77th Street and when they enter the apartment (also two times) it's clearly off Amsterdam Avenue on Cathedral Parkway, which is around 110th Street in West Harlem/Morningside Heights - more than 2 miles from where they are supposed to be. These two neighborhoods don't look alike at all. See more »

What a bore!
28 April 2015 | by dstanwyckSee all my reviews

And, of course, a disappointment. With both Keaton and Freeman in it, you'd at least hope for if not expect a winner. They usually come across, but this time out they could have been twiddling their thumbs for the scene to finish and the entire film to come to an end. Hackneyed, stereotypical older couple who've lived on love all their life and haven't seemed to benefit from it. And even worse were the apartment seekers, one duller and more idiotic than the next. The secondary theme with a kind of terrorist was just noisy and in the way, although pretty much everything was in the way. The actors playing the stars as younger selves (Claire van der Boom as a young Keaton was spot on) were better at it and both Cynthia Nixon and Carrie Preston played well. But all in all, something that was meant to obviously be a feel good movie succeeded in making me feel worse.
