Alcoholism is given the shallow Ross Hunter treatment in this silly soap opera. Meg Ryan is happily married to Andy Garcia but can’t seem to shake her addiction to the bottle. She puts her family through hell, but thankfully her hair always looks great. Beautifully photographed, it never really gets to the core of its subject with any kind of intensity, instead concentrating on gushing romanticism that never rings true. Ryan is excellent in the lead, but the movie lets her down every step of the way.
