everything was so predictable and written like a cliche.

Great actresses and although it's predictable, it's entertaining and sweet.

Was the story 100% believable, no not really, but it was a great way to escape for the evening and enjoy a movie without being insulted, spooked, grossed out or generally bored by MILLENNIALS.

'The whole film was embarrassing and cliche and made out like when women become mothers they lose all sense of self, all self respect, all boundaries and all decency, making the lives of others hell as a result.

Silly, pointless .

..boring stuff...

It is sooooooo predictable and rather cliche.


Very cliche.

The atmosphere looks like an unpredictable mix of the endearing side of any Woody Allen movie from the 70s, the irreverent side of Sex and the City (1998) and the cheesy side of Mamma Mia!

One Of The Worst Movies I Have Ever Seen .

An ok movie but very predictable, nice movie to see with the family.

Sweet and entertaining .

20 mins into the movie and I was falling asleep.

The premise of the story was interesting however the writing was very poor thus the storytelling remains very shallow and predictable from beginning to the end.

A feel good movie about the midlife crisis and the empty nest syndrome.

This movie used every predictable trope and cliche to tell a story that was old fashioned at the very least.

Ok but predictable .

This movie is boring, and pointless.

Very predictable .

Totally predictable, full of cliches.

It's hard to follow and a little unbelievable.

But very predictable.

Just wow, it was so boring and predictable I can't believe I even made it all the way through.

Cliché or not, I loved it!

This movie starts out fine , its amusing but gets extremely cliche and boring , it glorifies cheating and tries to preach the whole " forgive " mentality that plagued our cultures where it resulted in unhappy relationships , also there literally no plot , nothing to look forward to , you can pretty much predict the movie from the start

Dull, boring, wooden acting, and such underdevelopment of a story.

I love all three actresses and even if it's a tiny bit predictable I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A total waste of time honestly...

The idea sounds interesting, but better meet your own mum than watch this boring movie.

It's a feel good film for mums, I enjoyed it and found the end to be heartwarming!

so cliche and predictable .

Worth the watch .. .

Worth watching.

I enjoyed it and glad to see I'm not alone in feeling neglected😥

But then, the cliche cascade started, each son telling his mother which mistakes they made while raising them...

I saw this movie last night to destress and enjoyed it.
