I hadn’t really heard much about this film or really seen any trailers but there wasn’t a lot on to choose from so we thought we’d try this.

How bad can it be? It Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway!

It’s not bad at all! This film was a complete surprise and even made it’s way into my Top 10 for 2015!

It’s well written with the laughs and the drama flowing beautifully together as well as seeing the generational differences between the two leads.

Speaking of Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway; they are brilliant together as well as with the rest of the awesome supporting cast members.

There’s plenty of drama, romance, laughs and just plain entertainment to be had with this film.


I’m not a fan of the ending, it feels like maybe there wasn’t a clear idea on how to end it and it felt rushed.

A great film to watch, even if you don’t happen to be a fan of any of the cast or even have any idea of what the film is about.

CHAPPY THINKS any place that gives their staff free massages is worth not getting paid!
