IF ROMANCE IS A MYSTERY, THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY TO FIGURE IT OUT.
Introducing a reasonably impressive and large cast in a story about six individuals in Los Angeles, you kind of get the feeling that director Willard Carroll has a thing for Robert Altman. A lot of talking is required. But that doesn’t automatically make it an experience on Altman’s level; the script simply isn’t remarkable enough and the lack of passion is bothersome in a film that explores love from every angle. The cast is more fun to watch, as big stars like Sean Connery mingle with TV actors like Anthony Edwards.
