Oren Little has turned his back on all his neighbors and shunned the notion of being kind to others after the death of his wife. Next door neighbor Leah has put her soul, and her tears, into her stagnant singing career after the death of her husband. But then Oren's son shows up needing Oren to take care of his daughter Sarah. Oren has no patience for children, Leah never had any of her own, but 9-year-old Sarah just might be the spark that allows these two lonely souls to turn their home into a Little Shangri-La.

Funny with a terrific cast
31 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

I found this movie charming witty touching and well cast and acted. The humor was original to this story and spontaneous laugh out loud at times. Written by the same person as 'As Good as it Gets' there is one similarity with the caustic man who later does some really wonderful things like Jack Nicholson in that movie. Michael Douglas as a crusty old realtor has a role that is tailor made for him and the drug addict son plot is quite touching since there are real life similarities. He always delivers his lines just right. Diane Keaton as his tenant sings well and doesn't over do it too hysterically like she does some times. They are well paired so it's not icky. Sterling Jerins the little girl from the Conjuring plays the grand daughter and she is very sweet and touching. Frances Sternhagen is a very welcome presence. Frankie Valli makes a too short cameo. Liked the jokes related to showing the house.

Don't know why a delightful movie like this has been so savaged by critics. Compared to other recent rom coms with older actors, it is better than "Hope Springs" with Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep which was cringe inducing and better than "It's Complicated" with Meryl and Alec Baldwin which felt forced and contrived.
