Kay and Arnold are a middle-aged couple whose marriage has declined until they are now sleeping in separate rooms and barely interact in any meaningful loving way. Finally, Kay has had enough and finds a book by Dr. Feld which inspires her to sign them up for the Doctor's intense week long marriage counseling session. Although Arnold sees nothing wrong with their 30 year long marriage, he reluctantly agrees to go on the expensive excursion. What follows is an insightful experience as Dr. Feld manages to help the couple understand how they have emotionally drifted apart and what they can do to reignite their passion. Even with the Doctor's advice, Kay and Arnold find that renewing their marriage's fire is a daunting challenge for them both. Written by

In almost every exterior scene of Kay and Arnold's house we see a Buick sedan and a Subaru station wagon parked in the driveway in front of the garage. However, when the taxi picks up Kay to take her to the airport and drops Arnold and Kay back from the airport the cars are not in the driveway. It was suggested that since they were going out of town they might have moved the cars into the garage, but when Kay leaves it is unknown, even to Arnold himself, if he will accompany her. See more »
This is a boring, repetitive mess of a movie. Scene after scene with sex therapist played by Steve Carel ,who sadly brings no humor, and Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee as estranged couple repeating their expressions of "discomfort" over and over again. It's embarrassing to watch two talented actors "pretend" so poorly. Never for minute is it believable that these two would ever get together, let alone stay married for 30+ years. Lesser known actors would have been better, but then no one would go see it...which is my recommendation. I would also rate camera work as "poor", musical score seems to compete with on screen action more than support it, and the ending is straight out of a Lifetime channel made for TV movie.
