Reviewed on 5/27/2010...
This has got to be one of the most cloyingly "sweet" movies I have ever had the misfortune to sit through. It was so relentlessly ootsie-wootsie-cutesie that I'm still reeling from the after-effects. There should be a warning that goes with this movie that the pure saccharin content is downright dangerous for diabetics. Gene Wilder's character wants a child, but he doesn't really need one, he has the me-me-me mentality of a two year old. Mary Stuart Masterson's character is a tiny breath of fresh air in as much as she actually swears a bit in the beginning - for which she gets gently and cutely rebuked, of course. About the only thing positive that I can say about this movie is that Christine Lahti looks fabulous in it, the best I've seen her in anything, after she gets past the kill-me-now-so-nobody-I-know-has-to-see-me 70's hairstyle they afflicted on her to give her that "youthful" look during her courtship period. My recommendation is for everyone to stay the hell away from this movie unless you have had your shots against being "cuted" to death.

A charming love-hate story!

"Star Trek's Dr. Spock aka Leonard Nimoy brings romance film fans a story about love,marriage,infertility and death. Almost three years after directing THREE MEN AND A BABY,Nimoy directs a talented cast such as Gene Wilder,Christine Lahti,Robert Prosky and Mary Stuart Masterson. Duffy Bergman(Wilder) is a cartoonist who appears on Regis and Kathie Lee(Regis Philbin appears as himself and Kathie Lee Gifford is not seen). Duffy meets and falls in love with Meg Lloyd(Lahti) at a booksigning party(Duffy was promoting a book he wrote). Meg is a cook working at various restaurants. Steven Tobolowsky is Dr. Hugo Blatt,a pediatrician. Duffy and Hugo have been best friends since college. Duffy's parents are Emile Thomas "E.T."(Prosky) and Adele(Anne Jackson). Masterson is Daphne Dalillo,a young college student who drives Duffy to her alma mater to give a speech. So Duffy and Meg get married and later try to have children of their own. They pay several visits to a gynecologist named Dr. Benjamin(David Margulies). Duffy even tries to artificially inseminate Meg(he has no luck despite helpful items such as magazines and videotapes). All the conception trouble led to the Bergmans' separation. Tragedy later struck. Adele is killed by a falling stove(the stove was being hoisted to a floor in a multi-story apartment building and was wrapped in rope that broke). Shortly after Adele's death and funeral,E.T. meets and falls in love with Claire Raskin(Susan Ruttan of TV's L.A. Law),a legal aid attorney who helped E.T. with matters regarding Adele's estate. In this scene,E.T. holds a private meeting with Duffy and Vivian,Duffy's sister. E.T. and Claire planned a weekend getaway. Vivian(Jean DeBaer) was shocked that E.T. has found himself a new lovemate just after Adele died. Vivian herself is married with two obnoxious sons. One of them,Roger,is a "little s--t",according to Adele's last scene and Duffy in a later scene. Roger and his brother brought water guns to their grandmother's funeral,playing with them. After Meg and Duffy separate,Duffy goes on a cruise,joining Hugo and his date. After the cruise,Duffy calls Meg,attempting to reconcile with her(Duffy didn't really want children at first but changed his mind after Adele's death). While on the phone with Meg,Duffy is opening mail. He received a letter from a divorce lawyer representing Meg. A very angry Duffy enters the kitchen of a restaurant where Meg is working and tells her he does not want the divorce. "I'm the ship and I have sailed!",angry Meg tells her soon-to-be-ex-husband. Duffy,angrier than before,takes off his trousers and leaves them behind in the kitchen. During the separation,Daphne becomes Duffy's girlfriend. Daphne even becomes pregnant by Duffy! In another scene,Meg and Claire are eating lunch at a public table. Meg told Claire that she(Meg) misses Duffy. Meg said she felt that Duffy was treating her like a "baby machine". Then,there's E.T. taking Claire to be his lawfully wedded second wife. Meg even attended the wedding. Much of the cinnamon-flavored wedding cake wasn't eaten. Meg had opened her new restaurant and she and Duffy finally reconcile. Meg had adopted a toddler which Duffy adores as well. Wilder made one last film following this one,ANOTHER YOU with his three-time co-star Richard Pryor. Wilder and Pryor previously starred in SILVER STREAK,STIR CRAZY and SEE NO EVIL HEAR NO EVIL. Wilder himself,at the time of filming this movie,was gradually coping with the loss of his comedienne wife,Gilda Radner. The Saturday Night Live alum succumbed to ovarian cancer at age 42 in May 1989."
