Dan (Kevin Bacon) and Lorie (Elizabeth Perkins) work for the same newspaper publisher. When an editorial columnist retires, Lorie and Dan both apply for the position. The publisher likes both of their work so he decides to run a column of the "crossfire" nature, with both Dan and Lorie giving their opinions on diverse subjects. This is workable because, naturally, they stand directly opposed to one another on most matters. A television show gets hatched, also. However, they fall in love and move in together. How long will it be before bliss ends? This film, although made quite a few years ago, is still relevant today. The concept of couples who disagree on topics but, let love triumph, is neverending. Both Bacon and Perkins show off their comedic and dramatic abilities well and are very attractive people to watch. Nathan Lane and Sharon Stone lend their many talents to the movie as well. The settings and costumes are a hit while the couple's apartment is very beautiful. Last, but not least, the script is clever and fun. If you are searching for a "date movie" to show while you and your partner are snuggling on the couch in front of a fireplace, try and get a copy of this film. It's sweet and thought provoking nature makes it good choice.
