Any movie that starts with the death of a dog is not my idea of a good time. Yes Virginia, Hazel is a boy dog!
If you’re expecting a really cool romantic story between the two leads, you might as well stay home. Blythe Danner is a gorgeous 70 year old widow. Her posse has Mary Kay Place, Rhea Perlman (from Cheers) and June Squibb (from Nebraska) playing a poor game of bridge. Along comes, She Who Must Be Obeyed’s heart throb – Sam Elloitt. Two dates later he drops dead. O crap, I am left with a wailing wife. O well, that’s the way I felt when they killed off Charlotte in Charlotte’s Web.
It was great to see Max Gail from Barney Miller in a minor role. This movie is only 92 minutes you might want to pass it by.
