For over 50.

The language was disappointing. I'm so tired of F bombs in movies, even said only once. I loved the concept of a retirement home for musicians. I did wish the end showed the quartet actually singing.

Disappointing and forgettable

My wife and I found this film disappointing and forgettable. I would not take my grandchildren of any age to see this film - it was embarrassing. The acting of the key characters was good and redeemed the film slightly but the script let them down. Although classified as comedy it was not funny, the story line was weak, and there was no depth to the characters; the humour was often crude and bawdy, e.g. an elderly man peeing into trees and bushes on several occasions, and the jokes were often sexually suggestive or vulgar. The "f***" word was used very loudly and unnecessarily on 2 occasions. Apart from the age of the characters it shares nothing in common with 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' which we enjoyed immensely and was all that this film sadly is not.
