Weak comedy
4 November 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

One of the biggest wastes of time in the world of 1980's comedies. Daniel Stern has the rather thankless role of a stockbroker who decides that something is missing in his life. He works to solve that problem by having a love affair with his boss' wife. The only thing missing here is a good script.
