Trivia

Underrated relationship comedy
20 October 2019 | by alirezashoSee all my reviews

Underrated relationship comedy from the 80s, from the play "Sexual perversity in Chicago" from late 70s. The dilemmas,insecurity,tension,friends etc rings true even today didn't like the remake since I think Kevin Hart is annoying The original can still be enjoyed and laughed at, Bernie and Joan balance of with some tension& drama and bring comedy
