Warren Beatty and Julie Christie had been previously offered to play Stephen and Nina Blume, when this project was in development and, for a while, they were both attached, until Beatty dropped out, convincing also then-lover and partner Christie to leave the film as well since he was supposedly too busy working on Shampoo (1975) and on the script of Heaven Can Wait (1978), which was made by them, only several years later.

George Segal (on a roll at this period in his career) gives his usual solid, likable performance as a Beverly Hills divorce lawyer who soon finds himself divorced as well--from working-girl Susan Anspach; he quickly tries winning her back, despite the fact she has taken up with a hippie musician (Kris Kristofferson). Paul Mazursky wrote and directed this quirky comedy-drama about love and heartbreak, and he only strikes some sour notes in the last portion of the plot (which is saddled with an ending that just doesn't take off). Otherwise, a well-cast, well-written picture for grown-ups, a hidden gem. Bruce Surtees' cinematography is very expressive, supporting performances by Kristofferson and Marsha Mason are first-rate. Worth finding! *** from ****
