The Time of Their Lives

Joan Collins is an ex-Hollywood star who enlists the help of a new friend to journey from London to France for her ex-lover's funeral.

Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover's funeral on glamorous French hideaway Ile-de-Re, former Hollywood siren Helen (Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a bad marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by coach, ferry, car and foot in a race to get to the funeral on time, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a reclusive French millionaire (Franco Nero) along the way.

Goldby's film does ... prove that both Collinses should have been better used over the years, even as it slightly misuses them itself.

Should be like a 'Shirley Valentine' sequel, but falls a little flat.

The year's first entry in the so-bad-it's-good list is The Time of Their Lives, a dramedy starring Joan Collins that had me in fits of unstoppable giggles.

The whole enterprise feels like a ten bob knock-off, or a would-be remake that couldn't nab the rights.

There is a creeping and depressing awfulness to this sentimental silver-years comedy, whose silly and twee style of humour and cardboard characterisation jar with its strained moments of attempted poignancy.

Writer-director Roger Goldby (Call the Midwife, Hustle) can't really escape his TV roots in this melodramatic farce.
