Very Poor - you have to ask, how could Maggie Smith be in a film that is so poor?!
With such an excellent cast, and a good story line, it should have been very good but I found the script and direction lacked 'sparkle' and were very disappointing (despite my being a great fan of Dustin Hoffmann as an actor) and, despite that I'm also a stalwart fan of Billy Connolly, he didn't thrive in the role. If you want this type of film I would strongly recommend 'the Exotic Marigold' and avoid a bit of a damp squib.
