My first review. This seems to be a low budget movie. Rachel saves the movie, she was at the brink of overdoing it however she managed to keep her role under control. She was just Rachel, explosive, quick and beautiful. She was convincing as usual. Harrison Ford really overdid his role. Anyone could replace him and nobody would notice the difference. Making him more of a sarcastic person than a depressed old man would have helped the comedy part of the movie. His mood in the movie was contagious and it was supposed to be a comedy. Diane Keaton was not given a chance. Her role was too secondary. She was used to attract attention. That was a waste of huge talent. They should rewrite the script. Harrison has a program however remains as lonely as he was before, Diane had nothing going for her and Rachel made a big decision that half of the audience may think was a sample of poor judgement. I believe the scrip killed the movie.
