I watched this movie with my Mom during my parents divorce when I was 10 years old. After watching it again with my wife, I was brought back rather harshly to a time I would rather forget. I remember saying (when Finney goes crazy and gets his ass kicked at the end) the f word in front of my mother for the first time when I told her.."F#$@ this, I can't take this s%$#." Before that outburst, i had only heard my father use that type of language. The outburst wasn't a reflection of reality as my Dad was a 215 lb. golden gloves champ, but the raw emotion and broken souls that were portrayed was moving now and over a quarter century ago. Enough with my whining. Rent or Buy the movie if you can find it. I was able to watch because my morbid Mother (God love her) still kept a copy. Anyway, the movie was well cast, well written, and one of the most believable, heart wrenching performances (by all actors, especially Sherry) in modern cinema. However, one has to ask him/herself.."If I was Albert Finney, would I cheat on a 1982 version of Diane Keaton?". Then again, Hugh Grant cheated on Liz Hurley.
