Garbled drama about the unsatisfied working-class...
15 June 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

George Segal (scruffier than ever) plays a troubled family man with a suffering business who is cheating on wife Eva Marie Saint, cast yet again as a hand-wringing wife. Segal's an affable screen presence, but we never learn much about what makes him tick, what causes him to hurt the ones he loves. Talented director Irvin Kershner has hit a few snags in his career, but the semi-improvisational ground he's treading here desperately needs a center, or a leading character we can attach some emotions to. The finale is well-realized, and Segal's comeuppance is provocative and thoughtful. At least something is HAPPENING. Overall, it's another cynical slice of life, and it probably looked a lot fresher in 1970 than it does now. ** from ****
