Larry Douglas: [dancing together] Are my medals cutting into your boobs?
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Shakespeare or Marlowe?
Larry Douglas: Cathy, you have to know how I feel about you, especially when we dance so goddamn close.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Actually, maybe we should just sit down.
Larry Douglas: [sitting down] I don't know why you're so annoyed. That's one of the nicest compliments a man could pay a woman.

Interesting but meandering.
25 April 2000 | by (Charlottesville, VA) – See all my reviews

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 ****.
