While the movie draws upon the Peter Bogdanovich/Cybill Shepherd/Polly Platt love triangle for its inspiration, as many critics including Roger Ebert have noted, it also draws upon Nora Ephron's "Heartburn" for much of its inspiration, as Polly Platt never wrote a bestselling novel about her husband's affair, but Nora Ephron did.

Ryan O'Neal and Shelley Long are perfectly matched in this movie about a couple in a marriage that falls apart due to family vs. career. An eight year old Drew Barrymore is very impressive as a child who attempts to divorce her parents because they neglect her. Thrown in for good measure is an intrepid look at the movie business and an early vixen like performance from Sharon Stone as the home wrecker.
This film is very balanced in its look at all the subjects involved. A very under rated movie that contains some acute observations about life's priorities (or lack of them).
