Storyline

Alex and Erica Boyer's marriage is in a crisis: job and wife bore Alex. When Erica has an accident that has her staying in a wheel chair for some time, it changes their life: Alex meets Erica's young therapy assistant Lisa and gets the idea that she'd be the end of his boredom and he could start over with her. However Lisa's boyfriend feels what's going on and isn't idle. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

This film doesn't know exactly what it wants to be
21 October 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Is this a comedy or a drama? The sometimes confusing narrative finds married man Griffin Dunne hiring and eventually having an affair with a young nurse who he had originally hired to help care for his wife (Brooke Adams) who had recently been left incapacitated following injuries in a car accident. This rather obscure 1985 20th Century Fox release suffers from being an originally good idea that just didn't get off the ground as well as one would have hoped.
