Not a classic, but not a complete bomb either. It was one of those films that a store discounts to get rid of by selling it on the cheap rack because it doesn't immediately grab its audience.
The first couple of times I viewed it, I wasn't crazy about the production values...could be better. On the other hand, the actors have their own special charm, especially the two "wives".
The husband, though flawed, shows a heart-breaking humanity, desperation and pain underneath his naughty behavior that's quite appealing on its own.
Maria, the Italian wife, is so smart and resourceful, its hard not to like her. Charlene, Brooke Shields' character, has this fragility under a veneer of toughness, that soon lets you know she's a woman who's been hurt. Together both women, overcome their pain and grow to try again that is beautiful to see.
This film has a charm not readily apparent, but grows on you. Watch a couple of times and learn to appreciate.
