If I could go anywhere, I'd go to Paris. It sounds so romantic.
Paris - is terrible. Everybody's impolite.
Take me with you next time. I could show you the good parts.
I have a very limited expense account. I never even took my wife! My wife?

A fairly well done human drama about relationships, which manages to tackle the subject matter without becoming a romance, this is a superb film of its sort. The screenplay is excellently written, full of witty humour and biting satire, the film editing is admirable and the performances are excellent. Geena Davis won an Oscar for her role, but it is in fact William Hurt who stands out the most in the cast, in an unflinching but somehow amazingly poignant role. On the down side, the film is slow, a bit too meandering, and the final quarter is not really all that interesting, but overall it is an involving, very worthwhile watch.
