Storyline

2 quirky Manhattanites crash into each other cute at an ophthalmologist's office. Peter is a grouchy cartoonist/author whose vision is failing, divorced mother Theresa is also reluctant to plunge into a relationship right now. It's not love at first sight - both have their eyes dilated, plus Peter constantly lampoons women in his work, which book seller Theresa knows well. Loosely based on James Thurber's drawings "The War Between Men & Women," and Thurber's life, the film features animated sequences. Written by David Stevens

Quotes

Peter Edward Wilson: [aside, to audience, about speaker of overheard comment] Author of "Kiss Me, Kill Me, Buy Me, Love Me", I think that's the title. Or possibly it's "Buy Me, Take Me, Cut Me, Burn Me". I don't know, but at any rate you get the idea. It's a romantic novel.

Probably Not Worth Watching

Unless you are trying to see all of Jack Lemmon's films you should probably skip this film. Lemmon plays an almost blind cartoonist who is getting progressively worse. He has a weird relationship with Barbara Harris's character. She was formerly married to Jason Robards. The movie is not funny though it is supposed to be a comedy. It didn't really have any point or redeeming feature. 3 out of 10.
