A college professor (George Segal) and an English divorcee (Glenda Jackson) meet and marry while on a vacation in France. When the bride returns home she finds life less than rosey as the jungle of academia unfolds and the mirth of marriage fades.Written by
Odd story about a couple who seem destined to be together has George Segal as a college professor in New England struggling with his book, the death of his wife, and his subversive mother when he meets and marries a British woman (Glenda Jackson) he meets while on holiday in Europe.
Jackson is a fish out of water in the small New England town and has trouble adjusting to "college life" as well as her new husband's secrets and unwillingness to admit his career is foundering.
The re-teaming of Jackson and Segal (after their hit in A TOUCH OF CLASS) shows they have great chemistry, but the story is weak and the film is too long. Still, it has its funny moments.
Paul Sorvino (also in A TOUCH OF CLASS) returns as a philosophic cab driver. Maureen Stapleton is fun as the loony mother. John Cunningham is the best friend and rival. Others include John Candy, Martin Short, Janie Sell, Diana Barrington, Ken Pogue, and Hollis McLaren as the grad student.
