-Stormy Curry
If anyone other than Sally Field played the lead in this sweet comedy drama, it would have been more like "Goodbye Doris". But this Oscar winner is just so good playing a lonely woman who has a lot more going on than meets the eye. Trying to figure out her life after the death of her mom, who she’s been caring for, Doris could have come off as a one dimensional walking punchline. But Field, along with a wonderful script from Michael Showalter, make us care about her…we’re not laughing at her, but the awkward situations she puts herself in. One of the year’s most pleasant surprises.
