I enjoyed this movie. It made for a nice Valentine's Day movie. Ted Danson (George) and Mary Steenburgen (Clem) were excellent in their respective roles as a man and wife on the verge of working out a simple and amicable divorce that unfortunately got a bit more complicated than they bargained for.
The acting was smooth, the script was thoughtful, and there was just something that seemed so believable about the whole story (could it be that the two leads are actually husband and wife in real life?? Nah...) I also liked the way they depicted them being stranded, in their camper, in a freak snowstorm out in the wilds of Maine. It was convincingly done (at least as much as can be expected for a made-for-TV movie), and you couldn't help finding yourself caring about the individual fates of the characters involved.
The supporting characters (namely Joe and Tess who played the son and daughter of this couple, plus the women who played the grandmothers) were excellent, and I really liked the rather quirky side-stories going on with the kids - the daughter, for example, freaked out on the very first night of her honeymoon, and decided to ditch the marriage right on the spot!
I also couldn't help but notice that there were some excellent songs added to the movie as well. All in all a very nicely done made-for-TV movie, rightfully shown around Valentine's Day. Hopefully they'll show it again sometime so if anybody missed it, they can get a chance to see it.
