Quotes

Rachel: It's not an affair. Theresa never had sex with him, they just kissed.
Katie Jordan: A kiss is an affair.
Liza: You think so?
Katie Jordan: Absolutely. Once you establish anything truly intimate with another person, even talking, it has to affect the person you're supposed to be the most intimate with.
Liza: But the crazy thing is that Theresa could fuck her husband. She just couldn't kiss him, I mean really kiss him.
Rachel: It's not so crazy. There have been times when I'm so angry at Stan that I could fuck him but I don't want that count ...

A three handkerchief movie
21 March 2000 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Bruce Willis, Michelle Pfeiffer and a wonderful cast make this movie one of the best experiences of recent times. The story of a married couple losing each other and neither knows why; trying to hide it as the children grow through their early teens must touch the heart of most parents but this portrayal will reach right down inside you and tear you apart. I can feel the tears coming back even as I write this. This is a film of pure emotion so well written and beautifully directed with just the right balance of humour and tragedy and so insightful no one contemplating /in/out of a relationship should miss it.
