A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. Originally a stage play, the two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on.Written by

A number of actors and actresses were considered for the two lead roles. Al Pacino was up for the role of George. Source playwright Bernard Slade wanted the two leads from the Broadway production, they being Ellen Burstyn and Charles Grodin. Burstyn was originally rejected by the studio due to her age and Grodin wasn't considered a name actor. In the end, Alan Alda and Burstyn were cast as the leads. See more »
The intervals are mostly 5 years, except after 1966 it skips to 1972, as this marks their 21st anniversary. However in the 1977 meeting, George brags that he saved the marriage between Doris and Harry "6 years ago", that is,1971, not 1972 which was the actual meeting in which George pretended to be a counseling priest.

I accidentally stumbled across this movie on Slovenian TV a couple of years ago and could not stop watching. The idea is so simple, yet so original, and Alan Alda is just hilarious, as always. It is interesting how the decades and history reflect on main characters, as well as their own maturing and growing old process. A must see! It really is much more than your typical romantic comedy.
