Hilarious, funny, true to life in a way.
12 May 2001 | by pat-176See all my reviews

Extremely funny movie about a jerk that doesn't know a good thing when has it. Midlife crisis causes husband Tony (Peter Bonerz) to start looking around for something better in life. Jennifer, a trouble maker catches him and leads him astray. When he divorces wife Ellen (Barbara Eden) Ellen decides she is going to get him back. And she has just the recipe. She trades on his inherent jealousy (he actually is still in love with her), She uses a new friend Tony (Hal Linden) to stir him up by checking into a hotel with Tony. Their ensuing antics and the antics of the many others in the cast are hilarious. Barbara Eden as Ellen is at her beautiful acting best and takes husband Tony in stride, bringing him to his knees. Barbara Eden, Hal Linden and Peter Bonerz make this an extremely funny movie.
