TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Leisure Seeker certainly doesn't suffer from any shortage of acting talent, but it's largely squandered on a predictable, diffuse drama with little to say.

Finding any comedy in aggressive diseases requires a delicacy of tone absent from this plodding adaptation of Michael Zadoorian's novel.

[The Leisure Seeker] is a predictable scenario. It can't be anything else. But these two great talents invest it with humanity and courage in the face of its inescapable home truths.

A funny and truthful look at growing old together.

Plenty of scope, then, for tragedy and comedy, but Paolo Virzi's film is neither profoundly sad nor uproariously funny. It just trundles along in a cocoon of modulated mediocrity, like the Spencers in their Leisure Seeker.

Top Critic

Sentimentality and morbidity sit side by side. Thankfully, Mirren and Sutherland bring enough mischief, humour and passion to their roles to ensure that the film's more toe-curling moments are quickly forgotten.

I found it sucrose and glib.
