The two stars, David Naughton and Jennifer Dale, make this one worthwhile
19 November 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Richard (David Naughton) and Sarah (Jennifer Dale) married for love, great love. But, now, ten years later, they have three children and all of the stress that goes with raising a family. The two sons and lone daughter make things difficult, picking fights over what to have for breakfast, among other mundane matters. Enter temptation. Richard, a businessman, learns that his colleague is having an extra-marital thing, "just sex and not an affair", and he is intrigued. A female co-worker also comes on to Richard in a big way. So, although Richard and Sarah have plans to visit a ski lodge with the family, Richard suggests that they take separate vacations to benefit from some time apart. Sarah is miffed, for she still has to keep three kids in tow. But, in the end, Richard heads to Mexico, with high hopes of some hanky panky, and Sarah hires a babysitter and travels to the ski slopes, where a handsome young ski instructor looks her way. Can anything good come out of this scenario? This film, made some time ago, has two things going for it, Mr. Naughton and Ms. Dale. They are attractive, very comic performers who make the most of a mediocre (but sometimes funny) script and poor production values. Naughton, especially, is hilarious as the man on-the-hunt in Mexico who gets thwarted time and again. Don't look for great costumes or amenities here, as the film looks very dated. But, if you like nice-looking stars and/or have a hankering to see the entire list of available romantic comedies, its not a total waste of time.
