Ordinary and very uncool film
8 October 1999 | by krypto-3See all my reviews

This film is about the relations between women and men in the normal every day conflicts. The man is trying to make it a good nice nuclear family, but the mother gets a job as manager on a tie designing place. It is supposed to be funny, but in my opinion they have failed to succeed this.
