Yes, I’m being slightly facetious – frankly, this movie could have been about my parents, who are significantly younger than the seniors onscreen, and they’d be even more frustrating to watch – my father thinks he can just type his email address into the URL field, and my mother uses Google to access websites she knows the address for. At least someone who has never used a computer comes to it with some freshness…I guess?

Bless the teens who had the patience to help them. Back in my day – says this Gen-X codger – I was not a patient teen. At all. Except when waiting for my computer to print stuff out, as it did MAYBE a page a minute.
