Storyline

At Kennedy Airport two frazzled New Yorkers are separately boarding a plane to Temecula, California. Comedian Bobby Stein, who's trailing his ex-lover and Sally Shelton, a very pregnant travel writer on her way to interview a renowned playboy and owner of a vast vineyard. Their paths all cross at Ruth's Inn where owner Ruth Oakley has taken naturalism to unnatural extremes. Budd Bailey and Susan and Michael Kaye join them at the Inn, where the guests discover that when you follow your heart it can lead to delight and unexpected places. Written by tonyman

A nice trip to the wine country...
13 April 2002 | by Renaldo MatlinSee all my reviews

"A Weekend in the Country" isn't very funny for a comedy, it isn't very romantic either, for a romantic comedy. It is however NICE, a down-right pleasant trip to some very beautiful surroundings (the California wine district), and best of all: you get to spend it with some very nice people: Christine Lahti, Rita Rudner (who also scripted), Richard Lewis, Faith Ford, John Shea, and Dudley Moore giving a performance that seems somewhat poignant, considering this would be his last real on-screen movie-role. And to top it all off you get the added bonus of the great Jack Lemmon who gives it all some class.
