This is a cute, feel-good, happy-ending film that belies the truly awful reviews it got. Check the one in Time magazine – ouch, it’s harsh.
My daughter Anjulie took me to see it today, on Mother’s Day, and, given the reviews, we went expecting the worst.
It is fluffy, entertaining, doesn’t make you think, made me cry, and all ends happily, so what can be wrong with that, pray tell? Admittedly, we both agreed that had it NOT been Mother’s day, we probably wouldn’t have gone to see it.
But we did, and we enjoyed our afternoon together.
Jennifer Aniston looks good.
Ditto the gorgeous Kate Hudson.
Julia Roberts is totally under-used as a character, and has a truly awful hair do that does nothing for her. Until she smiles.
There is a slight Indian connection which we all appreciated here in Delhi.
That’s about it, really.
Not great cinema by any stretch of the imagination, but perfect for a Mother’s Day outing with one’s daughter.
