Story


Madelyn Reid accidentally learns of her husband's infidelity when she saves his sexy young mistress (TALK TO HER's Leonor Watling) from a bungled suicide attempt. When her unsuspecting young rival suggests the two new "best friends" take each other's advice-on everything-Madelyn sees an opportunity to seize the upper hand. But the plan backfires when the aspiring young actress insists Madelyn keep her end of the bargain-and orders her to star as King Lear in a very amateur production, with Lucy playing The Fool. Things really get out of control when Lucy starts giving Madelyn instructions on dealing with an amorous coworker and a handsome stranger (Aidan Quinn). Marcia Gay Harden gives a hilarious, touching and utterly believable performance in this delightful comedy about two women who become the unlikeliest of friends.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..is slack and its dramatic conclusion unfulfilling..”
by Andrew Schenker [Time Out New York]
“..despite a terrific starring turn by Marcia Gay Harden, this tired sex farce fails to induce laughs..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..there's little of the master's zip, wit or taste for desperate absurdity in this ill-conceived marital farce..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
