When a professional couple who have lived & worked together for many years finally decide to marry, their sudden betrothal causes many unexpectedly funny and awkward difficulties. They soon find that being married is often quite different from being "best friends." Written by

Based on the real relationship between film director Barry Levinson and his wife, Best Friends is one of the greatest last films that marked Burt Reynolds's popularity.In the brutal crime-drama Sharky's Machine, Reynolds achieved perfection, as a director and a movie star, but here he is sweet, vulnerable and, yes, believable. An absolute box office champion during the seventies and early eighties, Reynolds lends all his charm, claw and talent to his character. Goldie Hawn, charming and provocative, composes with perfection a woman who,in spite of loving Reynolds' character, is afraid of getting married, what may mean a precipitate step in the relationship. Jewinson, one of the last real filmmakers from Hollywood, accomplished a sweet and hopeful comedy/drama about the ups and downs of every couple of lovers. The big surprises are the beautiful (and nominated for an Oscar) song called "How do we keep the music playing?" and the talented supporting cast, that includes Jessica Tandy and Ron Silver.
