Dialog that stays with you forever.
3 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie once, in 1977, and I still think of it at times. The humor was ahead of it's time then, and still funny now.

The philosophy, and the origin of the title, holds up well.

Are the players crazy? Or are they doing the only thing they can to cope in an insane world? Some of their choices, especially when it comes to moving, appear out-of-the-ordinary. But when we learn the reasons for their actions, we start to see some clever tools for holding their marriage together at all costs.

Marlo Thomas is her usual, lovable self. Charles Grodin has never been funnier.

The dialog is clipped, (think His Girl Friday), and filled with nonsense and good sense. Some of it will stay with you for years.
