Storyline

An artist fired from his job comes home and discovers that his wife is having an affair and that she is leaving with her lover. He then sets off in pursuit of them, but in the process runs into another woman who is on the run from her crazed lover who is chasing her as much to get his stolen motorcycle back as he is to actually find her.

Were they serious?
19 August 2000 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie is supposed to be a romantic comedy about Stern, a good actor who should have known better, trying to win back his ex-wife, McCarthy, using methods that even back in 1989 would fall into the "stalker" category. The film makers seem to think this sort of thing is amusing. There's even a scene where Stern jokingly points a gun at his ex-wife's new boyfriend. Things get even stupider when a psychotic hood and a dopey mechanic (Koteas, who also should have known better) get thrown into the mix. I can hardly believe a script this bad was made into a movie! It really makes you wonder about what the film makers had in mind when they were making this.
