Storyline

Ed and Alice live together and will soon marry. She decides she'd like more sexual experiences before settling down with the man she loves, so she convinces Ed they should "see other people" (as in, sex with strangers), even as they continue to live together and plan the wedding. They discuss it. Each knows someone who thinks this idea is cool; each has a friend who thinks they're nuts. Things start reasonably well, but soon their relationship goes awry. Can the genie get back in the bottle and Ed and Alice return to companionship - or does seeing other people put an end to how Alice and Ed used to be? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Likable stars, mostly unlikeable film
9 June 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Ed (Jay Mohr) and Alice (Julianne Nicholson) have been a couple for four years. They love each other and feel comfortable in each other's presence. Alice, a gardener, likes to pick out fragrant new shampoos for the two of them and Jay, a television writer, always chooses postage stamps that he feels Alice will enjoy putting on their letters. They live together and, in fact, are planning a November wedding. All of a sudden, reality hits Alice hard. She tells Ed that, having only slept with three gentlemen in her entire life, she fears that she has missed something along the way. Perhaps, Alice convinces Ed, they should have an open relationship until the actual day of the wedding. She can see other people and so can Ed, with a definite don't-ask-and-don't tell policy between them. Ed is astounded but he reluctantly agrees. Soon after, Alice hooks up with a fellow landscaper named Donald while Ed makes a play for a starlet he meets on the set. But, is this really the way two people in love should behave? Although the stars of this film are charming and attractive, the story is truly, well, unlikeable. Yes, every committed couple contemplates infidelity, at some point, probably, but most folks realize that the damage and heartache it would bring to their own relationship may be too great. This film tries to make a comedy out of this premise, and there are a few laughs to be had, but, ultimately, the sadness of the concept takes over. Yes, the costumes, sets, and production values are nice, making the film look great. But, at its heart, this movie is a cautionary tale for those who have wandering eyes. If you avidly see every romantic drama out there, you could spend some time with this film. Be warned, however, that the comedy elements go south very quickly.
