Hooray! for Nancy Meyers's generation. They did know better...
Nancy Meyers is nearly 70 years old and this script seems like an attempt to prove that her generation had the answers for pretty much anything.

Baby boomers everywhere united! You are still needed to share the wisdom. Next generations are only to show you how your laptop opens and how to create an account to facebook.

I guess there countless movies like this. You know some "back in school" flicks where the old guy or girl returns to "school" and instantly becomes one with the "kids" and gives life lessons to the youngsters, how to treat a girl, how to be punctual, about honesty and fidelity. Next generations are just email-exchanging idiots.

Anyway. Despite the whole "wisdom" and "life begins at 70" crap, that are simply not true, you have 3 extremely capable and experienced actors (DeNiro, Hathaway, Russo) delivering the easygoing script and showing enough chemistry to make the film bearable. There is obviously an uplifting mood (the self made millionaire girl etc. etc.) but there are troubles in Paradise. You can't have it all. Success and solid family and be happy. That's the message here, although in the movies anything could happen...
