Eva, a widow and retired history teacher, enjoys a quiet life. Everything changes when she receives a life insurance check accidentally made out for $5,000,000 instead of the expected $50,000. At the not-so-gentle urging of her best friend Maddie, Eva deposits the money and the two friends head to the Canary Islands with every intention of living it up. But their fantasy is short-lived when they discover that they have become media sensations overnight.

Good cast. Lightweight comedy, predictable story, no surprises.

Pretty cute movie. I love these classic actresses. Jessica Lange is a timeless beauty.

Really stupid.

A crazy, mostly unbelievable plot made this silly movie very enjoyable to me. Great acting - lots of old timers doing a great job. Parts of it were really funny. I don't really care how unlikely they might be to happen in real life. Maybe not for everyone but generally just fun.

Because of the great cast I looked forward to watching this. I had to make myself watch till the end. Disappointed.

Screwball comedy for old people. Plot has lots of holes, but who cares. Bonus: Can you spot the actor better known for Johnny Fever in this film?

Interesting story line. Good to see Howard Hessman of KRP Cincinnati as the insurance detective, tracking down Shirley McClain, but was not mentioned in library summary,

Based on the reviews I read on IMDB, I was willing to give this movie 20 minutes. I did not laugh once in that time and turned it off.

Predictable & outrageous (as in not believable). Waste of good acting talent, as even they couldn't elevate the script beyond mediocre. A few entertaining moments but the mindlessness is rather an insult to the intelligence of older women (at whom it is aimed).

MacLaine and Lange were a wild and crazy duo who out done those men in "Last Vegas 2013." Imaginative romance fantasy film for senior women.

What would you do if it were your money?
-If it was my money?
If it were my money.
-It is your money.
No. If it were yours.
-If it was mine?
If it were your money, not "was" your money, "were."
-Oh, my grammar. Right. God, I don't know. I mean... I'd go to the most
beautiful island in the world, where no one ever goes. Take all my clothes off
and throw them on a bonfire, and just dance naked with a dozen beautiful young men.
Well, when is the last time you had anything with Ben?
-I don't want to talk about that.
I thought you said he was a fire hose.
-He was. He was just spraying it everywhere else.
Make a wish.
-I wish it was somebody else's birthday.
Alvin. I've often wondered why you don't retire.
-Oh, I wish I could.
-My daughter lives in China. I fly her back here once a year to see me. Plane fares are enormous.
I got a case right here. If you nail this one, you can move to China.
-Oh, I don't want to move to China.

You have kind of a deep voice for a woman.
-That's a very personal observation, young man.
How would you like to go back to the hotel? You see... If I was 30 years younger, I could pad the way a little more. And waste even more time.
Are you joining someone?
-Yes. Yes. Uh, if you see a... a tall, dark, handsome guy between... the ages of... 21 and 55, broad shoulders, slim waist, big wide feet, I'll be at the bar. So keep your eyes open. Comprende?
And it's from this very spot that he set sail to discover the Americas.
-Yes, but when he discovered America, he thought he had found India. That's why our Native Americans are called Indians. You know what they say about Columbus? They say he didn't know where he was going, and then when he got back, he didn't know where he had been.
Oh, I know that feeling.

I'll say this to everyone. I could have been on the cover of Vogue. I grew up with an IQ of 175, but all my life did I ever meet a man who said, "Hello, cutie pie, what's your IQ"?
- Well, no, probably never, never.
Never. Not even if they're curious.
I swear, I don't have your money!
-I have listened to your bullshit for much longer than I want to listen to bullshit. I didn't teach tenth grade students for 35 years for nothing. I could tell when they were lying even when they didn't know it.
Tell me something, seoras. When it's bedtime for a baby in America, and the baby cannot sleep, is it common to fire machine guns right outside of the goddamn window of the goddamn nursery room,
when you tell your husband 700 times to shoot the gun out in the jungle so that his wife can get some sleep?
