Why watch this film?
"Moving On" directed by Paul Weitz is a comedy-drama film that follows two estranged friends, portrayed by Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who reunite at a funeral and decide to seek revenge on the petulant widower, played by Malcolm McDowell, of their recently deceased best friend. Along the way, Fonda's character reunites with her great love, played by Richard Roundtree, as each woman learns to make peace with the past and each other. Despite the film's promising premise and the star-studded cast, "Moving On" fails frustratingly often to rise to the level of its leads. However, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are entertaining company regardless of the context. The film's R rating is due to language, and it has a runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes. "Moving On" was released on March 17, 2023, and distributed by Roadside Attractions. Overall, "Moving On" is a decent watch if you're a fan of the cast, but it falls short of its potential.
