Storyline

This candid, often-funny drama explores the bittersweet side of friendship through the eyes of two best-friend married couples. Invited to dinner at the suburban home of husband-and-wife food critics Gabe and Karen, Beth reveals she's breaking up with her husband Tom after 12 years of marriage and two children. This unexpected revelation forces Gabe and Karen to reevaluate their seemingly perfect relationship, as well as their friendship with two people who seem to be refusing the life they all once worked so hard to preserve. The drama is set in present-day Connecticut and New York City, with flashbacks to Martha's Vineyard twelve-and-a-half years earlier. Written by <Laffz00@aol.com>

"Forces of nature" 2: Ten years later (DVD)
18 July 2009 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

For those who have seen the above mentioned movie, it was about the wedding: how can you be sure that the promised one is the perfect one?

With "Dinner with friends", the married life analysis goes on and this time, it's about the time effect: after years, children, does love is still there or is-it extinguished and we must start it all over again?

On the contrary of "Sex, lies …", Andie is now surrounded by a terrific cast. I am really surprised by the performance of Dennis Quaid, because he was more in action movie for me but he shows there a lot of deepness.

The couples are really opposite to each other: the one that dissolves becomes happy while the one that rejoices becomes sad. It's like the split of their friends gave proof to their inner fear and they start to break up even thought they have all the reason to be happy!

A good movie! I got only one deception: as it is a indoor drama, I am still wondering if there is poor people or working class in America, because the houses or the families are always top! No way for a cheap accommodation in those movies! I would take this as a contempt for common people!
