Synopsis:
This feel-good romp is a whistle-stop tour across beautiful European locations, reliving memories and making some new ones along the way! A dying wish from their best friend Anna (Andrea Corr) compels Cassie (Kelly Preston), Kate (Jenny Seagrove), and Liz (Sally Phillips) to put old feuds aside and take her 17-year-old daughter on an interrailing journey across Europe that they did not quite finish during their studies. Now in their fifties, they are older but not necessarily wiser. With some bad luck, train strikes and romantic entanglements thrown in their way, the trip promises as many laughs and tears and self-discovery as the first time around.
The question is: will they reach their destination in time to honour their friend's memory?

British Comedy Drama That Lacks A Lot - Off the Rails review by GI

Spoiler Alert
30/12/2022

This British comedy drama could have been absolutely brilliant but for strange reasons it lacks the script to make it memorable and drifts into a whimsical and daft scenario that doesn't work. The added sadness here is it's the last film of Kelly Preston who sadly died of cancer prior to its release. She plays Cassie one of three former friends along with Kate (Jenny Seagrove) and Liz (Sally Phillips) who are left rail tickets by their fourth friend who has just died and urged to rebond on a trip across Europe that they all did together in their youth. The only condition is they have to take their friend's teenage daughter Maddie (Elizabeth Dormer-Phillips) with them. Old animosities still fester amongst the three and they bicker and hug a lot as their journey has travel hiccups. There's some small romantic interludes chucked in for good measure including with a mafiosi Godfather character played by Franco Nero in a storyline that is silly and goes nowhere. Judi Dench and Ben Miller have cameos and whilst this has some laughs and a sunny disposition it's instantly forgettable.
