Peter Bogdanovich has said in interviews that this movie is "terrible", as it makes he and Cybill Shepherd out to be the villains and presents Polly Platt as the victim in a very one-sided manner. It is ironic that Ryan O'Neal, who is a veteran of several Bogdanovich productions, is playing the Bogdanovich character. It is also ironic that O'Neal's daughter in the movie accuses him of being neglectful, since O'Neal's real-life daughter Tatum O'Neal also accused him of being neglectful. See more »
I'm just a kid, and I don't know what I'm doing sometimes. But I think you should know better when you're all grown up. I think you should know how to act, and how to treat people. And I think if you once loved someone enough to marry them, you should at least be nice to them, even if you don't love 'em any more.

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).
