Elliott Gould and Diane Keaton take out a lease on love with an option to buy in this glossy romantic comedy costarring Paul Sorvino, Victoria Principal and Candy Clark. Unhappily divorced after 10 years of marriage, Les Bingham (Gould) finally convinces his ex-wife Katie (Keaton) to give him another shot. Reluctantly agreeing to a legal arrangement instead of a wedding vow, Les signs a six-month contract, unaware his lawyer (Sorvino) also loves Katie and plans to use the wiles of their sexy neighbor (Principal) to bust up the Binghams for good. Cowritten and directed by Norman Panama (How to Commit Marriage), I Will... I Will... For Now was produced by George Barrie, CEO of Fabergé. A musician-turned-businessman, Barrie would produce over a dozen films, earning Oscar nominations for "All That Love Went to Waste" (A Touch of Class, 1973) and "Now That We're in Love" (Whiffs, 1975), two songs he wrote with Sammy Cahn.
Funny and outrageous look at a man's libido and marriage
Either you like Elliott Gould's sexual roguishness or you don't. I do. I thought this was very very funny (though easily open to charges of misogyny). Gould's character is completely immoral, treacherous and very funny in his dealings with his wife and other women.
The movie has the feel of Portnoy's Complaint - a sort of "My history of women and my sex drive" - co-starring Brenda Vaccaro (who's quite good) as the wife. Gould's character will do and say anything to have sex with anyone to whom he's attracted - regardless of present ties or the future consequences - which can be laugh out loud funny. Will many be outraged at the unfeeling attitudes toward the women so taken? Yes - particularly women. I enjoyed it.
