Alec Baldwin plays Charley, an eccentric millionaire who is worth 28, 38, 48 million dollars, something like that! This buys a lot of things, maids, swimming pools, clout and influential friends...Oh!!! one more thing!! a twisted life!! Earmarked to marry some pro-corporate, social register bimbo, Charley falls in love with a lounge singer, and parenthetically he is hot for her as well!! Generally, you are not hot for the woman you fall in love with...Very unusual!! but, on the other hand,!! How Nice!! Kim Bassinger looks absolutely beautiful in this movie ,virtually every guy who watches this movie puts themselves in Alec Baldwin's position!! Being married to the same GORGEOUS!! woman copious times, insures that he is not only in love, but he also has the hots, CONSTANTLY!! GREAT MOVIE!! Not a typical Neil Simon film, this one takes the men's side!! The typical guy can laugh inwardly as well as outwardly throughout this entire film!! This is a better Neil Simon effort!! There are no platonic responsibilities to securing an amicable divorce!! Not everyone is a New York intellectual! Nice to know such an accomplished director can accommodate a prevailing eighties philosophy of men just acting like men!! I think this movie is so hilarious!! but then again!! I should!! I am a guy!!
