We Got Married Again & Again & Again - Can Do!!!
3 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is love and there is hot, Charlie and Vicki had both, why is this so amazing? A myriad of reasons, so let's attempt to make the necessary detachment! Love is trust, mutual understanding, mutual respect and spiritual growth. Sex is fantasy, illusion, degrading escapism and some other kind of growth (guess what?). The film "Marrying Man" delves into the painstaking dichotomy of what a marriage should be, and what men really want out of it. The creative itemization to this movie is marvelous! All of the circumstances in this movie make love and hot the overt culprits to virtually all of Charlie's (Alek Baldwin) problems. The genre of this film evokes a tremendous wealth of humor which is based on the fact that a nefariously candid handful of guys are afflicted by their relentlessly sordid human nature! The entire movie appealed to me: Taking place in the fifties, the events of this era accommodated an auspicious camaraderie with the cavalier demeanor of this film! This movie was full of mildly lewd behavior which reflected the naivety of the times! Another stellar aspect to this flick was, of course, the given factual detail that Kim Bassinger looked utterly gorgeous!!. Neil Simon directs this movie, and, it surprises me how Mr Egalitarian Liberal of the Seventies, (Neil Simon) can be so flippant about this film's insinuated sexist wiles of chicanery, kidding or otherwise!! The music accommodated the pace of this film, and the acting was incredibly believable. People might say, "You are suppose to take a driver's license test four times if you have to, you are not suppose to marry the same woman four times". To which I say, "Marrying the same woman four times, "Can Do!!"
