Falls prey to two common problems: (1) predictable, uninspired humor, and (2) inept attempts to inject drama into the proceedings during the last act.
An old-fashioned character piece, more dramatic than comedic in tone but leavened with occasional humor.
Its ability to tickle the funny bone and warm the heart allow it to work as a traditional rom-com even if the participants are older than is the norm for the genre.
