Quotes

Janet Wheeler: Been out on a date?
Molly Wheeler: Yes. I want to talk to to you, Jan.
Janet Wheeler: I don't feel much like talking, Molly
Molly Wheeler: Alright then listen. I think I know what the score is. You went ahead and got hooked, in spite of my advice. OK, so it's spilt milk. You made yourself a lonely bed and you're willing to lie on it.
Janet Wheeler: That's right.
Molly Wheeler: It isn't right. It's all wrong.
Janet Wheeler: Molly, please...
Molly Wheeler: Well what kind of a marriage have you got? A quick kiss, a swift kick and bingo - you're a war widow!

Molly Wheeler: What kind of a man ...

I loved it

When I first saw the movie I fell in love with it and the leading actor. I found it to be one of the most romantic movies I had seen in a long time and I have not seen anything made today that has changed my opinion. The acting in the film was excellent. Dane Clark is very understated and very believable. I would recomend this movie to anyone or any age.
