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

This movie's title "Best Friends" is a bit of a fallacy. Even though they may be "best friends", from the start of the film, Burt Reynolds and Goldie Hawns' characters are living together as partners and are "more than friends". See more »
a movie that's not afraid to tackle the best AND worst of relationships.
I was a kid when I saw this but remember it for it's realism. I love sappy, hollywood unrealistic love stories dearly and I'm not embarrassed to admit that this picture(which does NOT fall into the above mentioned genre) did indeed bore me at certain moments. But it has a realistic quality that many romantic comedies lack and though the relationship between the two main characters isn't always sappy and perfect it does have more of an element of realism then other romantic comedies-it's a realtiohip that is sometimes great, othertimes not so, it's flawed but still real--in other words it's human!
Although this isn't one of my favorite flicks in the whole world I would recomend it for the reasons listed above. A movie doesn't always have to be sappy all the time, to be welldone.
