Starts off as amusing, ends up tragic
7 October 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

OK, so a guy ends up married to two women. The women, who are both smart, attractive, and successful, are utterly clueless about his double life. He practically does handstands and jumps through hoops to keep up the deception. A potentially amusing situation in other stories. But in this case, the rapid turn of events crescendoes to such a tragic outcome that the viewer feels slammed by a jolting deceleration, from any humor, to horror.
