Review Date: April 11, 1999
Director: Tony Goldwyn
Writer: Pamela Gray
Producers: Dustin Hoffman, Tony Goldwyn, Jay Cohen
The husband in this film was also a disappointment by the way of the lackluster performance given by the miscast Liev Shrieber, and his character's ultimately unconvincing actions. In fact, for a film that features a faithful Jewish wife cheating on her husband at the Woodstock concert no less, this movie offered very little actual drama, and a resolution that just seemed a little too tidy for my taste. Anna Paquin was good as the confused daughter, but all of her transformations have already been seen before in other better films, and the time dedicated to her character in this film, was simply not enough to care. Other than that, the jokes were all adult-oriented and lame for my taste, and the Woodstock scene was obviously shot within a group of fifteen people or so. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this film on any level, unless you are a huge Viggo fan (there's a shot of his ass in this one as well), enjoy sexual re-awakenings (via a couple of nicely shot sex scenes featuring the lovely Lane) and love the Diane Lane. Otherwise, this film offers a weak plot, very little in dramatic interest, and nothing memorable to offer cinema-goers.
