Joan Collins is an ex-Hollywood star who enlists the help of a new friend to journey from London to France for her ex-lover's funeral.

Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover's funeral on glamorous French hideaway Ile-de-Re, former Hollywood siren Helen (Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a bad marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by coach, ferry, car and foot in a race to get to the funeral on time, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a reclusive French millionaire (Franco Nero) along the way.

The script, along with Roger Goldby's direction, is numbingly inept.

The whole enterprise feels like a ten bob knock-off, or a would-be remake that couldn't nab the rights.

There is a creeping and depressing awfulness to this sentimental silver-years comedy, whose silly and twee style of humour and cardboard characterisation jar with its strained moments of attempted poignancy. Hide

The year's first entry in the so-bad-it's-good list is The Time of Their Lives, a dramedy starring Joan Collins that had me in fits of unstoppable giggles.

Should be like a 'Shirley Valentine' sequel, but falls a little flat.

Goldby's film does ... prove that both Collinses should have been better used over the years, even as it slightly misuses them itself.

Writer-director Roger Goldby (Call the Midwife, Hustle) can't really escape his TV roots in this melodramatic farce.
