A former Hollywood star enlists the help of a new friend in order to journey from London to France for her ex-lover's funeral, with the various mishaps en route making the trip unforgettable.
Determined to gatecrash her ex-lover's funeral on glamorous French hideaway Ile-de-Re, former Hollywood siren Helen (Joan Collins) escapes her London retirement home with the help of Priscilla (Pauline Collins), a repressed English housewife stuck in a bad marriage. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by coach, ferry, car and foot in a race to get to the funeral on time, becoming entangled in a love triangle with a reclusive Italian millionaire (Franco Nero) along the way. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another – and have the time of their lives.
- “There's pathos and laughter in this slim but uplifting tale about second chances in which Joan Collins plays a Hollywood has-been and Pauline Collins is the eternal Shirley Valentine.” – Urban Cinefile
- “A tale of revelations, rejections and recriminations, Time of their Lives is packed to the gunwales with EastEnders-esque narrative "twists” and now predictable cinematic “senior moments”." – Stuff.co.nz
- “The Collinses make an engaging double act and the strength of their performances goes a long way towards papering over some of the script's shortcomings.” – The List
