Not a bad movie but sort of predictable.

Not your usual romantic comedy. Well done. Recommend.

Picked this one up on a whim -Captivating performance by Blythe Danner
as the widow coming to terms with love and loss and featuring as a love interest, Sam Elliot
playing Sam Elliot with a cigar. A sweet movie for grownups which is probably why
I never heard of it.

This is more of a drama than a comedy. Blythe Danner's character tries to reinvent her life after losing loved ones. I enjoyed her friendships with her girlfriends and the pool maintenance man played by Martin Starr. It has the feel of an independent film, and some viewers will find it too slow and sad. I think it's worth seeing at least once. The Meddler treads similar ground and is a slightly better movie. I'll See You in My Dreams is rated PG-13 for sexual material, drug use and brief strong language.

I don't think this is a depressing movie. On the contrary, it's about loving and enjoying people and pets while you have them. You don't replace them when they die, but you do continue to have new and meaningful relationships. The movie also shows the importance of friends to comfort you and make you laugh.

liked this movie. Not sure why so many people didn't. The simplicity of the narrative was what I particularly liked.

Sweet movie about relationships. It centres around a long-time widow and her friendship with her pool man, her lady friends, who all live in a senior's retirement facility, and the new man she briefly dates.

A widow likes old dogs. One at the beginning that dies, a new old one at the end and a human one, (a sea-dog) in the middle. I guess the rat is a metaphor for the unwelcome reality of death but I can't believe you could catch one with a glass bowl in the middle of a room, what that was a metaphor for only the screenwriter could possibly know. The movie was as dreary as the music with the exception of Blythe Danner singing "Cry Me a River".

This should be categorized in the "Debbie Downer" genre. The dog was depressing enough, never mind Sam Elliott...

Everybody gets it (Spoiler Alert:)
-didn't you feel it when you were up on stage singing?
-Feel what?
-Like that was it. Like, while you were singing, that was all that existed. Like that...Like all your worries just disappear.
-People can spend their whole lives doing that. Waiting to find that feeling. Trying to find that feeling over and over. And in the end, everybody gets it. We wait our whole lives for something and we get it. And you know what that is?
-Happiness?
-It's death.

Dating game:
-Yeah, Carol, you're missing out on all the action.
-You know, I'm happy in my house. I'm very happy, thank you.
-Guys ask about you all the time, Carol. I could hook you up.
-Oh, come on, don't start with that.
-What?
-Dating talk. The second husband talk. You couldn't pay me.
-But they do pay you, ... when they die.
-Not always.
-And who's saying "husband"?

-No, there are three Jerrys.
-Jerry Davis, Gerry Phillips, and Jerry Li. See?
-Gerry Phillips is Gerry with a G though.
-Does he count?
-Do you know who he was with?
-Which one?
-Jerry Davis,
-For Christ's sake. Girls, are we playing cards or what?
