Jake and Kristy Briggs are newlyweds. Being young, they are perhaps a bit unprepared for the full reality of marriage and all that it (and their parents) expect from them. Do they want babies? Their parents certainly want them to. Is married life all that there is? Things certainly aren't helped by Jake's friend Davis, who always seems to turn up just in time to put a spanner in the works.Written by

When Jake meets the mysterious girl in the museum, he is wearing a gray suit with a dark pink tie. He's still wearing that suit on the train, but when he arrives home, he is wearing a dark suit with a red tie. See more »
The film's title is followed by the same 5 symbols that appeared at the start of each episode of Ben Casey (1961): "man, woman, birth, death, infinity" as the narrator of that series used to say. See more »
If you haven't seen this lovely little film yet, and you are due to be a young family man, I recommend it. Watch it with you significant other, and dare to try and not shed a tear, both laughing and really crying. If you're an 80's music fan, there's simply another great reason to love this film. Plus, Hughes uses fantasy outakes in a way few people had done prior to Ally Macbeal. It renders what could have been a generally typical, boring "chick-flic" a decently entertaining picture.
