Doesn't take itself too seriously.
29 September 2002
If you're able to get over the initial shock of seeing Eugene Levy, John
Hemphill, Linda Kash and other SCTV / Second City alumni in a "serious"
romantic comedy you may actually enjoy this. Levy and Kash are divorced
still working together and getting along just fine until they learn that
their divorce was never official due to a technicality. The seemingly
trivial task of sorting this out leads them to re-examine their lives and
relationship, with the help (or not) of their aggressive lawyers.
Despite the lingering feeling that this is the kind of movie these people
are supposed to be making fun of, not making, this is not nearly as
obnoxious as most movies about self-absorbed yuppies publicly working
through their personal problems in the early '90s are. Levy and Kash,
wonderful comic actors, work well together and turn potentially unpleasant
characters into warm, laid-back people you actually care about. Hemphill
also very funny as Levy's over-the-top lawyer. These actors manage to
infuse a dose of levity into a wooden script basically devoid of jokes.
A nice, inoffensive TV movie, but the potentially hilarious and endearing
performances are wasted on the script. Not recommended unless you're a
fan of the actors.
