Storyline

Mimi has tried everything to become the bride to Alan, but he chooses Elizabeth instead. The ironic part is that Mimi's mother writes romance novels and neither one has had any luck with men. So Mimi decides to get a job as an illustrator at the New York Chronicle where her friend Jimmy works. When Alan and Liz return from their honeymoon, Alan wants to keep Mimi at his side, and Mimi has no objections - in the beginning. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Uneven, but entertaining
3 October 1999 | by (Brunswick, ME) – See all my reviews

Okay, so maybe it's really uneven, but there are wonderful moments -- like Myrna Loy's drunk scene, and many of the scenes between Loy and Franchot Tone, especially the "Why didn't we name them Nip and Tuck?" scene in the car. The premise could be promising, but a lot of the dialogue is stilted and silly. However, Myrna insisting that they had oars all the time is great.
