Keaton was good, but ...
I really liked Natalie and Diane Keaton's performance most of the time. I also liked Sara and her 'Gilmore Girls' type relationship with her mother. But I would much rather have seen more of this than what ended up happening.

The movie I would have enjoyed would have included Sara and her mother and the cranky woman who owned the house where Sara and her friends stayed--who would have eventually given in and let Natalie clean up. There would have been ups and downs in the mother-daughter relationship, possibly involving the curmudgeonly neighbor with the flashlight, who would have warmed up to these wild and crazy people next door. The man Natalie took to the Japanese restaurant would have dated her. And the chef would have still been in this movie. I liked him.

I did like all the references to 'The Wizard of Oz', my favorite movie of all time. I never heard anyone talk about that song played as Dorothy and her friends approached Emerald City. It's not one I would remember.

I thought the reference to Woody Allen was cute, and I liked that hat Keaton wore in one scene which reminded me of 'Annie Hall', even though I didn't like that movie or Keaton in it.

As for the rest of the group in the house--lock them all in the witch's castle, guarded by a bunch of soldiers chanting 'oh-we-oh, we-OH-oh.'
