Well what about it, you coming over?
I um - I have to go to a committee meeting at my daughter's school. As a matter of fact I just on the way out the door.
Tomorrow? Wait, tomorrow's Saturday. Monday?
Monday I promised Jonathon I'd go down and pick our Christmas cards for this year.
Your life really is full of crap isn't it?

Carrie Snodgress (a very unattractive name for, at least in THIS film, an attractive woman) gives one of the great, edgy film performances of the early 70's. The early 70's seems to be when some of the best films in recent years were made. This story of a bored housewife in New York who has an affair with a young Frank Langella is rarely seen on TV but you should rent it as soon as possible and witness some great movie entertainment. Frank also gives one of his best performances in this. As a matter of fact, Frank, Carrie and Richard Benji haven't really made a film anywhere near as good as this since. Its been all downhill for the three of them since. Hopefully their careers will have good third acts, ya dig?
