A Little Goes a Long Way
20 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tim Matheson loves women, I mean, he loves women. Enter Kate Capshaw, his latest girlfriend. She wants to get married, but he can't commit. This might sound like just another excuse to make another stupid and forgettable sex-pic with plenty of nudity. But, actually it's better than it sounds, with very little nudity save for a neighbor who vacuums in the nude. Tim exudes his usual charm. In fact, despite his flaws, he is more interesting than Kate Capshaw's character. Maybe, because of his flaws. But the highlights of the picture are his talks with his brother, played by Edward Herrmann (Gilmore Girls, Big Business) on walks through New York. His brother, being a psychiatrist, loves to analyze him and tell him what he's doing wrong. Their rapport on screen is very natural, and their conversations are well written. You really see them as brothers. If you want an enjoyable film with an 80s outlook on sex, look no further. You could do a lot worse.
