Love Elaine May! She wrote this odd one from 1972. So many big names in here. Lenny ( Charles Grodin) and Lila (Jeannie Berlin... Elaine's daughter) get married right at the beginning, and it all falls apart from there. Did you notice Doris Roberts as one of the wedding guests? She had JUST played a pretty big role in May's big hit "New Leaf". The happy couple bicker the first night of the honeymoon, which is normal, but then things take a turn for the worse. The "other woman" is Cybill Shepherd, whose parentals are Eddie Albert (Oliver!) and Audra Lindley (Mrs. Roper!) What a big, plastic, beach bucket of stars. Eddie Albert had been in the movies for years, but this was an early role for most of the rest of the cast. Turner Classics has this listed as a "COMEDY", but its a pretty serious drama.
Apparently Neil Simon worked on the screenplay, but you won't find the kind of humor that he put into "Seems Like Old Times" or "Murder by Death". Well done, but it definitely should NOT be listed as a comedy.
