Interesting but meandering story of the parallel lives of:
1. A megalomaniac woman who uses her "assets" to ascend the ladder to stardom
2. A producer/housewife (Susan Sarandon) who desires nothing more than to have her husband present half of the time.
Her husband becomes involved with woman #1, and complications ensue. Somewhat predictable towards the end, but seeing an early performance (and brief nudity) by Sarandon makes it interesting and worthwhile throughout.
Film also features Luray Caverns, which happen to be located in my native Virginia.
** out of ****.
