Storyline

Martin and Sally Cramer are a well-off couple of thirty-something New Yorkers whose once loving marriage is now stuck in a rut. Martin works as the principal of an elite private school and the enthusiasm and rebel spirit of his youth are now long gone. However, Sally is still the hopeful idealist and optimist she always was and prides herself with her hard work as the English teacher in a grade school in an impoverished crime-ridden neighborhood, where she's loved by the kids. They are both suffering from midlife crisis in a way, but they're dealing with it in an opposite manner. Martin has become a depressed nihilistic mediocrity and he accepts it. Sally has become frustrated by the lack of effort from both her husband and some of her troubled pupils to make things better for themselves and others, but she still has some lust for life left. Eventually, she realizes that their marriage is going nowhere fast and decides to leave Martin despite being in the early stage of pregnancy. ...

Pitiful is Funny!!!!!!!!!!!!
22 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Both Marlo Thomas and Charles Grodin play a socially dysfunctional couple who are basically INSANE!!..(Her insanity being more transparent) This is a characteristic that rules their lives...Bellvue cannot take care of them and they cannot take care themselves..Marlo Thomas is 39 years old before she realizes her father is deaf!!!...They love New York more than anything else...New York doesn't necessarily like them...The future is mapped out and it is pretty much established that everyone in the movie will wind up fighting a losing battle!!! The acting in this movie is extremely good!!...I love this twisted plot which borders on no plot at all...The same director as "1000 Clowns" has a knack for making an extremely horrible situation funny, I mean very funny!!...As he does in "Thieves"....Thieves is the definition of comedy, the situation for the characters involved is catastrophic, yet anyone who sits backs and observes will find these messed up people hilarious!!!I liked this movie, and I love dialogue and plots that are unconventional!!...I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars!!!
