Shirley MacLaine and Jessica Lange on a Spree (by drednm)
This film offers two good performances amidst a terrible screenplay and annoying characters. Shirley MacLaine and Jessica Lange play longtime friends who hightail it to the Canary Islands where the entire film was shot after MacLaine receives an erroneous insurance check for $5M. They get makeovers and meet up with a vague and really annoying man Billy Connolly who squires the ladies to a casino where MacLaine wins a bundle. In the meantime an insurance investigator Howard Hesseman drags MacLaine's daughter a dour Demi Moore along as he chases them down. MacLaine and Lange keep <more>
things afloat up to this point, but the already-bad screenplay takes another bad turn and becomes ludicrous. The two Oscar-winning stars are great fun, but the other characters as written are too annoying for the actors to salvage them. This film was in development for years and has a long list of actors attached to various roles. Could have been a lot of fun.
I rented this one from the library and was pleasantly surprised !!! Heartwarming and funny, a good story with some nice twists... It left me in good spirits and I am going to buy it because I really want to watch this again.
Feel good film... (by monaco-73885)
I've juste finished watching this film and it's great to see more mature actors showing that life doesn't end at 30, and you can continue living and having fun right up until the time you pop your clogs and die...so oldies take a leaf from this film, and remember you're never to old to live your life like a 20 year old...
Getting old is funny (by moviereviewer99)
Just turned 63 and saw this movie on Netflix.Got a real kick out of it, because everyone needs laughter, it's good medicine.Having just moved into a senior community and seeing many seniors that just sit around and do nothing, this movie was real refreshing!Especially loved the phone call to the insurance...check it out!
Such a cute movie!! (by davispittman)
I just adored Wild Oats. MacLaine and Jessica are so electric when on screen together, their chemistry works so well and it is so heartwarming to see these two veteran legendary screen icons interact and be so close. Demi Moore is good here too, her supporting performance is focused and it just hits the spots that are necessary. There are so many funny lines of dialogue in this film and I loved hearing them come from the actors on screen, because they were just the right people for them, I'm glad Demi replaced SJP too, I mean I like SJP, but Demi is better in this particular role. The <more>
plot may seem trite and formulaic, and in some ways, it is, but I suggest that you actually sit down and watch this movie, it may surprise you. It was much more emotional and touching then I expected it to be, especially towards the ending. Also, it teaches great messages, it teaches messages of long term true friendship, love, coping with loss, and that you are never too old to let loose and have a little fun, age is but a number folks. 8/10 for Wild Oats, go enjoy it, it won't let ya down! Also, like the second to last scene of the movie is just sooo sweet and touching and it almost made me cry!
Everyone is seasoned to perfection. (by subxerogravity)
Two old ladies prove that they still got the chops Well three old ladies depending on how one feels about Demi More . Shirley MacLaine plays a recent widower whose collects her late husbands insurance check and discovers they made a typo worth five million dollars. Jessica Lange plays her down on her luck best friend who convinces her to keep the money and go on an adventure, with hilarious results.Usually I use the word formulated when it comes to movies as a bad thing, except in Disney cartoons cause the formula works so well, but MacLaine and Lange prove that experience does come with age <more>
as they take this comedic formula and work it for everything it has too offer, making for quite a good comedy. It's a great cast that also stars Demi Moore leaving the heavy MILF work to Jessica Lange in this film as she plays MacLaine's uptight daughter, and Billy Connolly who plays Maclaine's love interest who seems to have a case of dementia. It's only of his funnier routines.So while overall you seen this long formatted sketch before, it does matter who's giving the punch line. Lange and Maclaine deliver.
Charming leads and well written story (by phd_travel)
This charming well written comedy caper could easily have been painful and unfunny but it is actually quite good and laugh out loud funny in parts. The 2 actresses Jessica Lange and Shirley Maclaine are so good they are watchable and never cringe inducing. It's good to see Jessica doing comedy again - she has been in horror for the last few years with AHS so it's nice to see what a good comedienne she is. Shirley is quite nimble for her age - she is over 80 and can still do comedy convincingly.A widow gets a mistaken windfall payout and sets off on a exotic trip with her best friend. <more>
Some stand out moments include crassness of people at the funeral. The part dealing with calling the insurance company rings familiar for many.The location in Gran Canaria is quite exotic and the resort is attractive.Worth a watch.
