The reminded me of "Sarah, Plain And Tall" except with some sex (no nudity) and some questionable values. If you read a critic saying this film was "a good one for family values" disregard it because those idiots who have no clue what values are. "Family values" does not mean a married man sleeps with his wife AND another woman just because that woman was going to be his wife in the future after the current one died. Sorry if that sentence sounds confusing.
Peter Weller, Lea Thompson and Farrah Fawcett won't be confused with the Glenn Close-Christopher Walken couple in "Sarah" but overall this is still a nicely-photographed, slow- moving decent story of generally good people. It's enough to make it a comparison to "Sarah" trilogy, which is a compliment, even if it isn't quite as good.
