Cliched

A tricky one to score.

The actors do their best with a script that really hasn’t aged well.

When Marty decides he wants a threesome, he does his best to convince his wife it’s a good idea. Laura is reluctant, but when Marty brings Didi home, one thing leads to another and…

For an extraordinarily long time, Marty thinks he’s the king of men. The fact that he’s finished, asks if they want snacks, leaves the room, sleeps on the sofa, while his wife is still in bed and moaning with Didi, doesn’t occur to him as a problem. That Laura then goes on an exploration of every woman she encounters feels very cliched and out of date. The fact that other women pursue her with a kind of 1960s stereotypical-lesbian aggression is deeply uncomfortable and disappointing (probably because the film is only twenty-one years old).

There is, however, a beautiful moment right towards the end, where Marty is given some home truths about what is, and what is not, a lesbian.

Low budget? Unrealistic script.
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the mildly entertaining film. Except for that it was slowly paced. Probably low budget ergo poor screenplay. Then relationship between the main couple is not very believable. As with such a subject that the film is about there would be more in-depth discussion.

Makes citizen kane look like the joke it is
In this world there is art and there is ART, this movie falls into the latter. This film is a masterpiece about what it means to be human in this world breaking down the boundaries of love, sexuality and the effect of infidelity on the nuclear family. This movie made me question what i knew about human relationships and i was loving every second. This piece has guaranteed mike Binder's place in the directorial hall of fame. In a world where every director tries to create non-linear story telling he asks why not tell it in order? I can not recommend this film enough as it has changed my life in more ways i could imagine. Mike Binder... I think i love you.
