Too bland.
6 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

The writer and director, Alan Alda (who also stars, sporting an unflattering haircut), enters Woody Allen territory here, but the result is unfortunately bland and forgettable. He seems to know all the right moves and maintains an agreeable tone, but there isn't enough wit in the lines, or enough laughs, or enough insights into the characters. Ann-Margret does look sensational, however. (**)
