Exciting, comedic film, with a lesson for all.
27 June 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was pleasured to attend the Dallas Film Festival and saw this film. I did not know what to expect, having been a minor character in the cast. My wife and I completely enjoyed it. Jon Dichter did a great job in putting together a sensitive subject of infidelity and values, mixing it with comedy. It is fast paced and keeps the audience interested.
