so sorry for my self watching this movie. and i was very disappointed of how the movie ended.
12 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

the story was good.although it was cliché but it was good. but it didn't been directed to be shown as real. why did Robert follow the couples to market and threatened Michael?first it was surprise to see Robert behave like fist time young lovers and second it seems the director was hopeless and desperate and wanted to go straight to the end. and why did took Debra Winger(Mary)that long time to get back to home and why their son (who was so worried about his mom and wanted to beat the s@#5it out of his father) did nothing to reach his mother and waited in the house and didn't conflict with his father who were sitting on the couch; it didn't make any sense. and the singing in the middle of disaster and family crisis,who dose that? it was my time to go bed but after seeing this ending i felt sorry for my self watching this movie. and i was very disappointed how the movie ended. and i don't mean that i love happy endings but after 3/4 of the film, it went wrong way.its like the director had cheated me as audience.(sorry for my poor English).
