Great all-star cast, beautiful scenery and an adorable dog. Just like a good Hallmark movie without the tears.

Beth , mother of two daughters and a grandmother , saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of a freeway on cold day in Denver, Colorado. She takes the dog to a vet who not only treats the dog but also wins the heart of Beth's younger daughter. The duo decide to get married. Beth is happy about the wedding. She is also sad about the prospect of being an empty nester. Joseph, Beth's husband, is a physician who is self absorbed and a workaholic, and has no time for "companion time" for her. Hence, Beth turns to the dog for companionship. She names him Freeway. Beth and Joseph arrange the wedding at their vacation home in the Rockies. After the guests and their daughter leave, Joseph takes Freeway for a walk. However, he receives a phone call from his hospital about a patient , gets distracted and is unable to keep an eye on Freeway who takes off. Beth, as expected, is terribly upset. Joseph assures her that they will find Freeway. His sister, her boyfriend and her son, who were also guests and had stayed back for an extra day, go looking for Freeway. Beth also enlists the help of a mysterious gypsy woman. Each member of the search party is affected by this little "Looking for Freeway" adventure. Comic and emotional, Diane Keaton as Beth and Kevin Kline as Joseph form a lovable "empty nester" couple. However, with cast as strong as this, I had expected some more depth in the storyline. It is not great. But not bad for a lazy and idle afternoon.

I agree, it is two hours you will never get back. Great cast but it was just terrible.

Boring movie. I was hoping for a lot more, considering the actors, but got very little in return. The psychic gypsy was lame.

A great film with several layers of story about the stages of life and relationships. The acting was so good that I forgot who the actors were and was totally absorbed into their characters. Great scenery.
