UNINVOLVING COMEDY/DRAMA ROMANCE
24 August 2001 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

Mediocre and unmemorable comey, in which a Beautiful college professor suddenly finds herself torn between two men. Clayburgh's staple role, the independent woman, wears thin in this lackluster romance. One of Douglas' earlier leading man roles before his breakthrough in Fatal Attraction.
