Bil’s rating (out of 5): BB.5.  USA, 1991.  Screenplay by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

In the tradition of Grand Canyon and The Big Chill, here’s yet another ensemble cast drama about adults making their way in the world of family and commitment. This one features three couples from completely different backgrounds who manage to find some common ground. and play two grown-up hippies who are now married and dealing with the advent of raising kids. and are a wealthy yuppie couple who don’t know if they still love each other anymore. and  are a new, young couple just about to start down the long road of matrimonial bliss. Watching these characters interact isn’t an unpleasant experience, but except for any opportunity to see Channing on screen it’s not all that memorable either. Something similar like Playing By Heart is a hell of a lot more fascinating and emotionally satisfying.
