Storyline

A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. Originally a stage play, the two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Quotes

George: I told you I was a married man with two children.
Doris: You're not?
George: I'm a married man with three children... I thought it would make me seem less married. All right, I didn't think it through, all right? There's been like a lead weight inside me all morning. I mean, denying little Debbie like that!

A Timeless Film, never outdated always one for the romantics
11 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm an old romantic, and the thought that something like this could happen to me fills me with emotion. Most men would say that this is a chick flick and not give it a second look, but if they would take the time and watch it through they would see more than just a little of their own fantasies wrapped up in this package. The movie is full of some very powerfully emotive scenes, and as masculine as I like to think I am it has me on the verge of tears more than once. A wonderful movie with two great actors, can't wait for the DVD my tape is getting thin.
