Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
Reasonably content middle-aged couple Julia and Jack (Stevenson, Stern) are on a once-in-a-lifetime vacation in Malta. But clueless Jack doesn’t know that Julia picked the spot because 25 years earlier, she and first love Alex (Karyo) promised to meet again at a small café. When Alex shows up swearing undying love, the wacky complications begin. British actor Stevenson can’t spin fluff into gold, but when she’s not being asked to dither like a moron, she brings some refreshing depth of feeling to writer-director Joan Carr-Wiggin’s sitcomy farce about midlife longueurs and pretty Mediterranean scenery.
