Storyline

A middle-aged woman has what she believes is a great life. She's been married for 25 years, she is the book editor at a newspaper where her husband is the editor and they have a great family. That all comes to a screeching halt one day when her husband announces that he is leaving her for a younger woman. Not only that, but the younger woman is her assistant. Not only that, but he's taking the newspaper in "a new direction" and won't need her anymore. It's then that she finds out who her friends and the people who love her REALLY are, and she gets a surprise when she runs into a man from her past. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Title misleading, Lahti still good
27 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

At the beginning of the movie, Rose meets Nathan on an airplane. Twenty-five years later, they are married with grown children and she is the book editor of the Los Angeles Chronicle, where he is the editor. Nathan (Brian Kerwin) wants to leave Rose for her assistant Mindy (Abby Brammell). And who can blame him? We get to see what a beautiful body she has. But Rose has so much more to offer, and Nathan can't see it.

Things get worse: Simon tells Rose the newspaper is taking a new direction, emphasizing youth and innovation. She no longer fits in.

At first Rose is too depressed to do very much, but it doesn't take her long to pull herself together and get on with her life. Later, she meets Hal (Bryan Brown), who she loved before Nathan. But he couldn't stay in one place, and she wanted a more stable life. There are flashbacks of their relationship.

This wasn't the zany and outrageous comedy the title led me to expect, but Christine Lahti was great as Rose, going from sarcastic to defeated to confident. We often heard Rose's thoughts, which sometimes conflicted with what other characters heard her say.

Also good was the actress playing Rose's ditzy and selfish daughter Rachel, who married a man her parents didn't seem to approve of.

This was still a pretty good movie.
