Swoosie Kurtz and Meredith Baxter save the movie
7 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

and yes, there is a great cat-fight scene wherein they have it out at the local supermarket. Clare Carey is the other, younger woman.

Yes, a common story that ends up better than real life...John Terry is an attorney who has an affair (if we check for this theme on IMDb there would probably be 300 more movies made this year with the same theme). Still, there is a sub-plot with Kurtz and Baxter, and they manage to pull it off.

Swoosie Kurt is underrated as an actress. She is always believable, and never appears shrill or fabricated, which is more than can be said for standard television fare. Just look at media hype like Jessica Simpson or Paris Hilton, to see what an actor is NOT. However, I digress.

If you enjoyed films like Adrian Lyne's "Unfaithful", think of this as an amusing TV version. The performances are decent, John Terry and Nicholas Pryor are also good, and the sub-plot about Baxter's husband not living up to her standards is realistic, while Kurtz tries to repair their damaged friendship.

Meredith Baxter lends a realism to the story, and I would certainly hope to see Kurtz and Baxter in similar TV movies. 8/10
