A couple that keeps crashing into each other! When they do not crash, they clash! It is an enjoyable chick movie!
14 March 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

George Segal (Just Shoot me, Look who is Talking) plays Adam Watson, a professor who has to write in order to get tenure. Running away from: (1) writing; (2) the fact that he has to compete for the Chair against his best friend, (3) the death of his wife, (4) a controlling mother; he ends up crashing into Tricia Brittenham, Glenda Jackson (A Touch of Class, Marat Sade), who is running from her divorce. The two crash into each other on the beautiful ski slopes of Europe. They marry and end up coming back to the States. She is British and is lost in the American-culture, with his academic friends, with his controlling mother, with a house left just like his deceased wife left it when she lived there. Tricia finds herself competing with a perfect, yet, dead wife. All those factors take a toll in their relationship. And they fight some more! I do not understand why in romantic comedies the leading characters have to fight so much. It seems to send a message to young people that fighting is the way to love, when in reality it is not, to the contrary! She tries to run away from her new found problems by going back to England. She needs peace and quiet but needs to take a cab to go the airport. The taxi driver Reilly, played by Paul Sorvino (Nixon) does not stop talking, leaving Tricia with no peace at all. Sorvino plays a very likable and at the same time a very annoying guy because he talks too much. Adam tries to commit suicide. Tricia realizes that Adam needs her. Tricia and Reilly rescue Adam in a very funny fashion! I am giving this movie a seven. If you can find the tape, rent it. Unfortunately this movie is not easily available at movie rental stores.
