i don't know why i like this movie so much! Lol i've first watched it in 1989, and then i read the novel of this. i've watched couple of times more, and i watched it last night again.

Michael Douglas is seriously good yet funny. if you have a experience of divorce, totally understand what they feel. yes, it's too much. normally we don't do this badly. like try to kill each other, he he and i really like this actress. i didn't know it's Chandler's father!!!(in sitcom drama Friends) i didn't realize it was her. wow, she's beautiful! OK, it's a good funny black comedy movie, i like it =)
