Storyline

When Duffy Bergman, a New York cartoonist, meets Meg Lloyd, a gourmet chef, he discovers the love of his life and they marry -- yet love alone isn't enough to make them happy. Meg decides she wants to have a baby, a goal that initially makes Duffy frantic, but soon becomes his most important desire as well. When they are unable to have a baby, Meg begins concentrating on her career and the two slowly drift apart -- eventually separating. Later, when Duffy is speaking at a convention of the Delta Gamma sorority, he reveals that the Delta Gamma girls have always been his dream girls -- his Love Goddesses. There he meets the young and uninhibited Delta Gamma girl, Daphne Delillo. When Daphne moves to New York to work as a network sports reporter, their mutual attraction and Daphne's spontaneity spark an adventurous new relationship for Duffy. Now Duffy must decide which is more valuable to him -- the relationship he has given up, or the relationship he has always dreamed of having. Written by Anonymous

i loved this movie!
15 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

why does everyone hate it? this movie is funny, heartwarming, romantic and witty. Someone earlier said that Gene Wilder and Christine Lahti had no chemistry, but i have to disagree on that subject. they have great chemistry. this movie is a slice of life comedy, not a goof ball one like "blazing saddles or " Young Frakenstein". Yeah, maybe it isn't perfect, but it is good, I might go as far as call it great. this movie deserves to be more popular. i loved it. 4/4 stars, two thumbs up! everyone else here doesn't know a good movie when they see one. this movie was awesome, i just think you guys are just sticks-in the mud. so go ahead and watch your stupid movies while i sit back and enjoy "funny about love"
