Jake and Kristy Briggs are newlyweds. Being young, they are perhaps a bit unprepared for the full reality of marriage and all that it (and their parents) expect from them. Do they want babies? Their parents certainly want them to. Is married life all that there is? Things certainly aren't helped by Jake's friend Davis, who always seems to turn up just in time to put a spanner in the works.

The film's title is followed by the same 5 symbols that appeared at the start of each episode of Ben Casey (1961): "man, woman, birth, death, infinity" as the narrator of that series used to say. See more »
Such a great movie! I was arguing with myself for the longest time, avoiding this one, thinking it may not contain elements of what I commonly associate John Hughes movies to be....a certain formula if you will. I was not displeased in the least with this movie. It had all the emotional elements a movie should have and what a great directorial project. I always enjoyed Hughes and his certain direction points and trademarks. I thought he did a great job.
Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth McGovern shine true as a newly wed couple, struggling in the beginning years and also experiencing different effects of their marriage. In some places, I found myself completely relating and laughing out loud. The ending held me on pins and needles and with that conclusion, I felt this movie had everything it should offer. Much Recommended and you can't say you've experienced a great John Hughes movie, until you see this one.
