This film doesn't know exactly what it wants to be
21 October 2002 | by sorannoSee all my reviews

Is this a comedy or a drama? The sometimes confusing narrative finds married man Griffin Dunne hiring and eventually having an affair with a young nurse who he had originally hired to help care for his wife (Brooke Adams) who had recently been left incapacitated following injuries in a car accident. This rather obscure 1985 20th Century Fox release suffers from being an originally good idea that just didn't get off the ground as well as one would have hoped.
