Storyline

Executive George Dupler loses his temper and is demoted to the night manager at a 24 hour drugstore. After he suggests to his teenage son Freddie that he stop having an affair with suburban housewife Cheryl Gibbons, who is a distant cousin, Cheryl tries to seduce George. At home, in front of his mother, Freddie accuses his dad of stealing his girl, because he found Cheryl serving George a meal in the middle of the night, while her husband Bobby was on duty at the fire station. George then separates from his wife Helen, quits his job, moves into a warehouse, and asks Cheryl to move in with him. Written by Will Gilbert

Trivia

This film's stills photographer Greg Gorman once told Roald Rynning what it was like to work with Barbra Streisand: "Before photographing Barbra the first time, I was a little nervous. I'd heard she was demanding. I was hired only to take stills from [All Night Long (1981)], but I asked to do a special shoot with her. I remember her office called me, asking what other big female stars I had shot. I had to answer I had done none. Nevertheless, one day on the set, Barbra came over. 'I hear you want to take some pictures of me', she said. 'What did you have in mind? What colors do you want to use?' I answered her straight back. Asked her what colors she liked and the interrogation was over. From then on she was terrific. For a photographer it's easy to work with her. She knows her face very well, the angles, the lot. She loves to see my Polaroids and analyze the results. I think a great deal of her success has come from asking questions and being a terrific observer." See more »

Unfocused comedy, romantic drama...
14 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

1st watched 4/14/2007, 3 out of 10(Dir-Jean-Claude Tramont): Unfocused comedy, romantic drama starring the wonderful Gene Hackman in an offbeat un-realistic role as a walked-on drugstore employee who chucks it all for an unpredictable life with a middle-aged married woman, played by Barbra Streisand. This movie starts out as a possible promising comedy with Dennis Quaid as Hackman's son, a goofball who first gets hooked up with the Streisand character after painting her bedroom. Hackman tries to discourage this, considering the fact that she's married and a 4th cousin, which of course wouldn't look right, but then gets involved himself and just decides that nothing really matters and everything should be laid out for all to see. This attitude doesn't go well with everyone, including Streisand's character initially, even though this is kind of the way she seemed to be living her life to those around her. For the rest of the movie we watch Hackman waddle thru this existence, and Streisand doesn't entice the audience much either with her watered-down character and what we have is a pretty boring overall experience. This movie would have been better if it decided a direction -- all out comedy, all out romance, or all out drama but instead we get what we get. A pretty meaningless experience, overall; despite the talent involved.
