      Steve D Predictable and deeply unpleasant. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed it, being a big fan of Cher I have tried to watch every movie she has. This movie is pretty good they are both very funny in this movie, But it's sad that I could only find it on YouTube. Not a lot of people have seen it or heard of it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review hayley b i know this movie didn't do well, but 7%? wow. I can see why this movie isn't for everyone, too much screen time is focused on tony and margaret's conversation in the house and it's not an "action packed" movie like most would have expected, but it simply isn't that type of movie. I thought it was a good film with small flaws. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I certainly can't understand why this film was so harshly judged. The writing really went into the complexities of love/hate in a marriage while also utilizing some comedic and dramatic effects. The problem is that this film was never given the promotion it deserved upon its release. Definitely a must see for anyone in a complicated relationship. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm not really sure what happened here. I like the idea of Cher and Chazz and on the occasion when they can work up a rhythm it seems ready to take off but Mazursky's natural rhythms aren't there and one just doesn't lose the thing that you've mined so successfully and for so long. I just don't understand it at all. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member cher does okay in an awful film.

Jan 5, 2022 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com What a waste of directing and acting talent; Cher's Oscar for Moonstruck may prove to be a fluke if she continues to make such bad pictures sporadically.
