Is this all there is to marriage?
12 September 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Interesting day in the life of a long time married couple who cope with each other's ways. They obviously don't always get along, their kids are alienated and maladjusted; their life is mundane and purposeless. I got a few laughs but also felt somewhat disgruntled while viewing the nothing lives of these folks and those they came into contact with.
