Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Better Late Than Never offers a laugh-out-loud viewing experience that celebrates camaraderie among older men as much as it does international travel. From figuring out local transportation systems to finding the strength to climb endless flights of stairs, the men show off their personalities, sense of humor, and occasional differences as they experience the highs and lows of traveling with friends.

There's lots of bonding, as well as some occasional plugging of sponsors and companies some of the men work for. But regardless of the many comments about aches, pains, and being older, it underscores that it is still possible to explore, learn, and cross things off your bucket list regardless of your age. Some will find this message inspiring, while others will just find it good plain fun.
