Quotes

[first lines]
Ethan: [retelling] So, we met at a party, and... it was magic. Within a half-hour we were driving up into this really nice neighborhood, and we were running down the stairs of some strangers back yard, and then we were swimming, and we were in love. What we didn't count on was that even though the lights were off, the owner of the home was there. And he came out screaming at us, and it was the greatest night of my life.

Intriguing combination of humor and pathos
4 May 2014 | by jlevy-24See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of the Duplasse brothers and of Elizabeth Moss and I saw this film at the Montclair (NJ) Film Festival and enjoyed it very much. The description doesn't do it justice BUT to provide a more in-depth description would have to include spoilers and this is a film that you DON'T want to have spoiled for you. Both Moss and Duplasse are charming in this clever dramedy with real meaning for those of us for whom a long- term marriage carries with it both discomfort and comfort. Ted Danson plays a marriage counselor who sends this couple off for a weekend that he guarantees will help repair their badly broken connection. But they are in for a wealth of surprises over the weekend. Lots of humorous bits but it is basically a serious look at long-term relationships and how people have to come to terms with what they truly want.
