likable leads in simple romantic story
17 March 2008 | by jimakrosSee all my reviews

John Ritter was at his best in comedy,but here he tried his hand at a straight romantic role with interesting results.His youthful qualities are at good work here in the role of the twentysomething lawyer who has an affair with a forty year old woman.This age-gap thing seems dated today compared to the early 80's a time that was considered pretty hip but still was much more conservative than these days. The female part is played by actress Karen Carlson,a stunning beauty whose most famous role was probably as Redford's wife in "the candidate".They don't really click with Ritter but the story is simple enough with some issues about ethics and a lot of talk about decade differences.Certainly,it doesn't look any strange why anyone would be in love with a looker like Carlson as the other characters around the couple want us to believe.An amiable little romantic movie with likable leads.
