ENTERTAINING COMEDY
29 April 2001 | by courteney_greeneSee all my reviews

Dudley Moore plays a TV-reporter who's married and wants to have kids. Unfortunately, his wife (Ann Reinking) is very career-focused and doesn't want to start a family yet. Moore falls in love with a girl he interviewed (Amy Irving). They meet a few times, not so much later she's pregnant. Moore says he wants her to become his wife. The day he decides to ask his wife for a divorce, she tells him she's expecting a baby. Moore doesn't know what to do, he loves both Reinking and Irving and they are both expecting his baby. He can't cancel his wedding with Irving so he ends up being married to both.

Everyone who loves the romantic-comedies of the eighties will agree: Although some moments are a little boring, "Micki and Maude" is a fun and entertaining movie with great performances of the leading actors (and a well-earned Golden Globe for Dudley Moore). The end is a bit lame, but the hospital scene makes up for that.
