Amongst a group of Donald Sutherland devotees, I watched this film with numb awe. That a film could be so incredibly unfunny despite a video cover describing it as a "riotous romantic comedy" was disappointing to say the least. The film contained none of Donald Sutherland's eccentric acting traits, which I enjoy in most of his other performances, and it was hard to recollect exactly which part was "riotous", though my friends and I thought we may have found it. I love films that are so awful that they are great, but his one failed to measure up even to this standard.
Despite this negative opinion, I must still advise anyone with an interest in Donald Sutherland, Suzanne Somers, or bad movies, that one should watch this all the way through, despite the tedium, to appreciate the bizarre and remarkable ending. Even though I could not describe what it is, it is to be seen to be believed. That someone, or some people, at the end of several months work watched this last scene and thought "Yeah, that makes a good ending" defies belief. Watch it for the ending!
