Superbly acted, extremely funny presentation.
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are no finer comedies. This is laugh-out-loud, comedic extravaganza. Alda and Burnett are wonderful, and the support is equally excellent. This needs to be released on DVD!! The pace is rhythmic and the story human, sensitive and hysterical. Is anyone listening?! The human condition is sensitively portrayed. The characters, though comedic, are fleshed out beautifully. Alda and Burnett are at their pinnacle, but the supporting cast is equally engaging, and equally funny as they support the development. As comedies go, this is up there with the finest of Neil Simon; The Good-bye girl comes to mind a an appropriate comparison to the quality and touching humanity of fine comedy!
