Maybe I caught this at the wrong time
4 December 2006 | by caa821See all my reviews

I'd give this film 7* - 2 for drama, but 5 for the fascination of watching Beau Bridges' character.

I may have caught it at a bad time, since I did get so engrossed in watching Beau scurrying about and having to maintain so many stories, checkbooks - and wives - that I couldn't dredge up as much sympathy as others seem to have had.

Not only did he have the problem of eating multiple dinners (I'll bet he carried a giant container of Tagamet or Tums), celebrating multiple holiday festivities, creating multiple excuses and falsehoods - PLUS! for heaven's sake, this man had a job as a physician which caused him to get up in the middle of the night to visit sick patients, to boot!!!

I guess it's one thing where some persons engage in seemingly endless "one-night stands," and extremely short-term liaisons.

But watching Beau with all the juggling of things the character had to execute, I couldn't help but imagine even Wilt Chamberlain or that lead singer from "Kiss" who has mentioned his prodigious romantic conquests -- together -- couldn't have accomplished what Beau did with these three separate women, all decidedly over the "long-term."

Finally, I guess if you really stretch your imagination, you can see where a series of events, travel, schedule, etc., could result in a man impetuously marrying a second woman while still in a complete, family relationship with the first. But -- anybody who would opt for a third is deserving of whatever problems he has to bear juggling everything, as well as the dire consequences which result when everything finally unravels.
