Outstanding performances, a few creaky jokes
2 January 2010 | by brettsterSee all my reviews

This made-for-TV version of the Bob Randall comedy play is available for viewing at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills and New York City. I saw it today in Beverly Hills after searching for it for many years. Perhaps because I had already enjoyed another adaptation of a stage play starring Alan Alda as a married guy who starts a relationship with a married woman (Bernard Slade's "Same Time Next Year," filmed four years after this aired), I was expecting something more along those lines. But this TV version of "6 RMS RIV VU" is more like a videotaped stage play recorded in front of a live audience, thus having more of a sitcomy feel a la "One Day at a Time." Both leads are quite young and in excellent form here, although some of the material is naturally quite dated (i.e., jokes about "shrinks"). As others have pointed out, it does have a distinct Neil Simon flavor, so if you like him, you'll probably like this. I have no idea why the IMDb page omits the supporting cast; somebody should add Millie Slavin and Lawrence Pressman, who play Alda's and Burnett's spouses, as well as Jose Ocasio and Francine Beers in small but pivotal roles.
