CAST: Ellen Burstyn, James Caan, Ann-Margret DIRECTOR: Michael Lembeck IN-THEATERS ONLY | NOW PLAYING
While her house undergoes repairs, fiercely independent senior Helen (Oscar winner Burstyn) moves into a nearby retirement community ― just temporarily. Once behind the doors of Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a hotbed of bullying “mean girls” the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school, all of which leaves her yearning for the solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it’s never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love.
An ideal date night or friends' group evening out. Love is love and there's no expiration date. Or, as Curtin's bossy biddy says, tongue planted firmly in cheek, "Eighty is the new 18."Thelma Adams, AARP Movies for Grownups
All of these actors have had stellar, awards-laden careers, and this new film, which could be described as Mean Girls in a retirement home, proves they still have a lot of firepower left.Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood Daily
