Judge Reinhold does angst ... again.Stockard Channing does brittle ... a lot.Linda Purl does ... very little.All to the accompaniment of a mournful cello solo.Trite story anchored by Jed (Reinhold) narrating in an equally lackluster manner.The plot? Married man falls for woman he always hated. Ho-hum.Not funny. Not original. Not insightful. Sense a trend?
