Great love story from the 80's
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2016
This 80's movie is really pretty good. This was don Johnson in his Miami Vice days, but his character (Wiley) is the furthest thing from Sonny Crockett. He plays a small town married man with kids who becomes disillusioned with his life. Susan Sarandon plays his wife who doesn't understand his unhappiness. Jeff Daniels is his best friend who longs for the love and family that Wiley has. He is probably my favorite character in the film. A lot of reviewers say that Sarandon was "too old" to play the part of Wiley's wife. I disagree as part of Wiley's character is that he's immature (he still wears his high school varsity jacket) and Sarandon character may have lost her ability to be spontaneous.
It's a nice little love story with great acting. I think that it's lack of popularity had a lot to do with Johnson's douchy reputation at the time the film came out.
