Mid-life crisis for everybody!
5 June 2001 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

Watching Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara together, we can trace the hilarious origins of Ben Stiller's dry wit.

The fish in a bathtub is a metaphor.

Yeah, I know it's a metaphor. Are you havin' an affair?

I need some tea!

Trapped in conventionality, the old "happily" married couple have their own rocky marriage plus they get to witness weddings on the rocks and a funeral. Stiller and Meara are two pros showing us the way to wedded blitz! Plus, the other characters give us variations on the theme.

The film is casually paced to fit the rhythms of life's ups and downs. Perhaps this film should be required viewing for anyone thinking of getting married or having an affair.

Thumbs up for the Oriental ointment that makes this an amusing farce. See it if you get the chance.
