Rather silly.....
13 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

and now dated, this film really is "Desperate Housewives" but in vanilla, sugar-coated and 1978 be happy seaminess.

Cybill Shepherd is way too nubile to believe, her perfect husband, perfect house and perfect tennis instructor. Just silly. John Hillerman adds the usual chauvinistic platitudes, and the embarrassing soap actors/game show personalities Elaine Joyce and Bernie Kopell round out the vanilla casting. Awful. 2 stars for Shepherd. Sorry she was in this.

The writer has not written very extensive material after this. I don't wonder why. Don't waste your time on this, watch "An Unmarried Woman" with Jill Clayburgh instead. It was produced the same year and was interesting, with capable, real actors in it. 2/10
