"Hold on...It's gonna be a bumpy ride"... Yes indeed. Why isn't this movie available on DVD ? I've seen this probably 20 times, and it still cracks me up-a funny, sad,tender look at love and life and marriage. Just watching Robbie Benson's facial expressions of a man who has no clue of what he's getting himself into is priceless.. That the cast includes his wife and children give this movie realism and tenderness that would otherwise not be possible. Karla DeVito is amazing both as his girlfriend, then as his wife. I only wish that she had been more visible over the years as an actress,because her talents have been sorely missed. The supporting cast is perfect-especially Kaye Ballard as his wife's office secretary. Burt Reynolds adds a classy touch-and to me, this movie is a overlooked gem that needs to be on DVD...
