The Press Reviews

  • The script, along with Roger Goldby's direction, is numbingly inept. Full Review

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

  • 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. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

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