Good Leads Fail To Sparkle
7 January 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

John Ritter and Penny Marshall lead a capable TV movie comedy cast in this tale of moral love in suburbia that somehow fails to ever really get off the ground. Director Tony Bill does an able job and the lack of sparkle is, for me, something of a mystery. The early scenes are played, perhaps, a bit too slow and straight. The situation of the affair that triggers the plot, perhaps, is telegraphed or maybe it tries too hard to be the anti-BOB & CAROL & TED AND ALICE in its own, TV-clean way. Certainly there is nothing in the dialogue to raise it above average.

In any case, there is nothing that seems to me to be clearly wrong with this movie, and it may work out better for you, if you are fond of the early 1980s. But I think not.
