Electrician Gus gets the chance to fulfill a childhood dream by buying an old bowling-alley with some of his friends. Unfortunately, due to the alimony payments he has to make to his ex-wife Leonora, the bank refuses to loan him the down payment. Knowing that when she marries again she loses her alimony rights, Gus tries to speed things up by bringing Leonora together with all the potential husbands he can find. Although this approach isn't very successful, it awakens feelings in both of them they didn't know they still had. Written by

The bright-sparking flash that represents electrical-arcing only occurs after Gus completely removes the fuse; there would only be a spark during the actual "removal moment", while the fuse was in the act of breaking the electrical circuit. See more »
[in disgusted sarcastic response to Gus's complaining that she appears to have "traded down" by divorcing him and hooking up with her current romantic interest whom Gus views as just a high-class dandy and clueless dude who's probably incapable of even simple tasks; Gus opines that the guy "likely doesn't even know how to change a fuse"]
Who really cares whether or not you can change a fuse, if the WIRES aren't even HOOKED UP INSIDE YOUR HEAD?

guy loses girl, guy tries to find another guy for girl
I expected this movie to bore me within the first five minutes, but I had an afternoon to kill and there was a rerun of a home improvement show I could watch. I got a pleasant surprise and never did check into ways to repaint the kitchen. I found the plot to be original because of Dillon's machinations to get another guy the girl. He's not much of a matchmaker, but he seems to sincerely want hi ex-wife to be happy. The end was predictable, but Sciorra and Dillon are convincing as angry ex- spouses who have gone in different directions and the numerous character actors fill in the occasional boring spots, especially Dan Hedeya - I like anything he does though, so I am biased.
