I myself had bought a copy for my mother and it appears as though everyone in the United Kingdom had the same idea! I have not seen the film myself yet I have heard it is something not just for women but for everyone to enjoy which is good. Personally, I can't imagine Pierce Brosnan dancing around with in a dress with old women instead of being James Bond but that is neither here nor there. This movie is something nice for the whole family to enjoy and I would recommend it to everyone!
