HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS
...well, for my taste I was just happy to see these three getting movie work, let alone working out their acting chops. Don't expect fireworks or anything too deep, even when the script reaches for that (I thought there were several problems with the writing: interesting avenues of action that could have been explored but were abandoned, set ups that were too pat and didn't add anything to the dramatic or comedic aspects of the story, etc.)...
But just to see a film starring a female actor over fifty (in fact over sixty) who doesn't look like she's been frozen in her thirties, and actually at times parts of her look her age, let alone carrying some scenes that were totally entertaining, was sweetly satisfying.
