I saw this when it first came out and didn't like it. But, I thought that I would see if time was kinder to this movie. It wasn't. My biggest problem with this movie is Ed Begley, Jr. He wasn't hot then and he isn't hot now. In fact, I had to stop watching at the scene where he and Meryl were literraly tumbling around her bed wrapped in a sheet because he is just so unappealing to me. As for Roseanna, surely they could have found a way to make her a frump even without going overobard with that thing on her face?
As for Meryl, she is beautiful but she is what I would say is movie star beauitufl. Striking, yes, but I don't think she's sexy here at all. Mary Fisher is no Miranda Preistly which is Meryl's comedic tour de force!
