  • Perfect flick for re-re-knitting a doomed neckline. It was reassuring to see actual wrinkles on screen!

    • I read your comment (and review) to my spouse and his response: does she mean wrinkles on Rob Lowe or the elephants?

  • Yes!! Loved it.

    • Just watched it last night. Very much like a Hallmark movie but the scenery and the elephants are reasons to watch!

      • Just watching the trailer I’d say this could definitely be a Hallmark movie!

    • It was a teensy-weensy too mild for me.

  • Thanks for the suggestion! I’m sitting in the airport about to board a flight to Palm Beach and I’ve just downloaded the movie to my iPad to watch on the plane. I love Rob Lowe, looking forward to his new show starting this January!

  • So true. I watched both of these movies in the past week as I knitted away finishing Christmas presents. If you aren’t an elephant lover before you watch the not-wild Wild movie, you will be!

  • I suggested it to for my granddaughters because of the beautiful scenery, and the eco message.

  • For all the makers out there. “How to Make an American Quilt”. I also love all of the things listed here (and, of course, I watch Albert Finney’s “Scrooge every year at this time, but “How to Make an American Quilt” is my All-Time Favorite. Knit to that!! (…no matter what holiday your are celebrating!)

  • Rob Lowe in Beyond the Candelabra was hysterical. This sounds like the perfect mindless knitting movie.

  • I cried so hard when Robert Redford crashed his plane, over 30 + years ago…

    • Yes…..(sigh) the movie, the music, Africa…..the best!

    • I STILL, to this day, get choke-y just hearing the music. Don’t remember crying as hard in a movie as I did in that one. But, of course I love it!

  • LOL re Lowe aging. If had had all that work done I’d age well too.
    Not to mention the private chefs, the truly personal person trainers and a an infinity pool in my backyard. (Well, I’m not sure his pool is an infinity one…) Happy Holidays!!!!
    (I just discovered Watchmen. It’s fabulous! Tho quite a different experience.)

  • Wow – thanks for the suggestion. I am a dyed-in-the-wool Aaron Sorkin fan – and my husband and I binge-watch all the series he’s done when we’re at our weekend place – Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, The West Wing and The Newsroom – now, if only he would do a new series. Look forward to seeing this movie. Merry and happy holidays, and thanks for a wonderful blog/website – everything!

  • I might have to watch this since I can’t knit anymore this week having nearly chopped the tip off my finger in the car boot this morning. Really wish I’d blocked the Christmas gifts yesterday now. Anyway I’ve got to learn how to stop now I can’t do much. This sounds like the perfect film. I love Rob Lowe too. And I’m attracted by the idea of a film with older people in the lead roles.
