Goofs

When Eva and Maddie are taken to their hotel after arriving at Gran Canaria airport, you distinctly see them being chauffeured through the middle of the island's capital Las Palmas, passing the famous Santa Ana cathedral before eventually getting to the hotel. This would be an unusual route to take to travel from the airport to the Lopesan Costa Meloneras hotel where the filming took place, as downtown Las Palmas is about 13 miles to the north from the airport, and the Costa Meloneras is more than 20 miles in the exact opposite direction, at the southern end of the island.

Quotes

Waitress: Hi! What can I get for you ladies today?
Maddie: Would you... date someone in their sixties?
Waitress: I'm sorry?
Eva: Er... French toast. That really looked good.
Maddie: Would you go out with a man in his sixties. It's a simple question. My husband just left me for someone who could be your twin.
Waitress: Oh my god. Are you Maddie Reynolds?
Maddie: Yeah.
Waitress: My friend Clarissa just moved in with your ex-husband.
Maddie: [is distraught] Oh my god.
Eva: We shall have a Spanish omelet.

MacLaine & Lange Excellent! Such Wonderful Aged Wine Served in a Cheap Plastic Cup of a Script :(
7 October 2016 | by ken558See all my reviews

Both Shirley and Jessica are experienced talents capable of bringing to live a real topper script, compared to this humdrum 1980s TV movie script they've been saddled with.

If they had their hands on a truly competent script, these two would sizzle in both the comedic and dramatic aspects. The direction don't fare any much better, and all you get is a lazy evening mildly enjoyable fare.

Demi Moore is given next to nothing real to do here, except mouth tacky predictable soap opera lines ... another waste!

What wasted opportunity with such acting talents on hand!

Andy Tennant (Director here) just snoozing out another of his sub-par bland celluloid.

The producer, script writer, director ... all ought to be zip-locked and cast away into 80s TV movie land!
