Storyline

The passion is gone from Brenda and James's ten-year marriage; he's into his corporate law career and she's a successful businesswoman, but she'd like the magic back. She takes the advice of her European aunt Lydia, and she books a weekend getaway at a Napa County resort. It takes her awhile, but she finally gets James to stop thinking about business. She asks him if he's had any fantasies, and he admits to thinking about watching her with a lover, so on the second night of their stay, she arranges for him to hide behind a mirror in the room while she goes in search of the inn's recreation director. Will it bring fire to their marriage, and what about her fantasy? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Most overlooked movie of the decade.
30 October 1998 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This is surely the most overlooked movie of the '90s, perhaps because of the misleading title: It's not about voyeurism, it's about love, romance, and not taking anything for granted. Director Shames uses perfect pacing and clever fantasy scenes to smooth out the bumps in the plot, while stars Kim Dawson (Brenda) and Al Sapienza (James) electrify the screen with the best performances of their careers (so far). Dawson is incandescent as a young woman who wants more from her marriage than she's getting; Sapienza is superb as a man who's baffled by his wife's dissatisfaction. It's played for comedy, but this is a smile-and-feel-good movie; it radiates warmth and affection from fade-in to fade-out. Only the poor choice of title, the lack of "bankable" stars, and abysmal marketing kept this little delight from the audiences it deserved.
