Lovely romantic comedy, with four very different women sharing a vacation in Italy, then the boys show up and instead of ruining everything, the place works its magic and everything comes out great. Buoyed by gorgeous scenery, beautiful music and first rate acting--Ms. Plowright is especially funny and endearing and Mr. Kitchen is always a welcome addition to whatever he's in--but really, everyone shines. I liked it enough to hunt down and read the book it's based on, which is quite different but also good. ( )
