Storyline

David Grodin has an obsessive-compulsive personality. But he is also just plain obsessed with Maxine Smith, his ex-wife of five years and his business partner. Their small business is Mr & Mrs, a small swimwear company he founded but that only became successful when she became its creative director. They work well together and are best friends, but Max feels that they just could not live together and be married to each other. They learn that because of a legal technicality, their divorce was never executed and thus they are still legally married. David sees this glitch as an opportunity to reunite with Max in wedded bliss. David's personal and professional plans hit a bump when into their office walks Carey Mays. Representing Fineway Industries, Carey has come with a lucrative offer to buy Mr & Mrs. But Carey is also Max's high school sweetheart, something that still seems to be front in his mind. What David does not know about the business proposal is that Fineway wants to retain ... Written by Huggo

Doesn't take itself too seriously.
29 September 2002 | by NewcriticSee all my reviews

If you're able to get over the initial shock of seeing Eugene Levy, John Hemphill, Linda Kash and other SCTV / Second City alumni in a "serious" romantic comedy you may actually enjoy this. Levy and Kash are divorced but still working together and getting along just fine until they learn that their divorce was never official due to a technicality. The seemingly trivial task of sorting this out leads them to re-examine their lives and relationship, with the help (or not) of their aggressive lawyers.

Despite the lingering feeling that this is the kind of movie these people are supposed to be making fun of, not making, this is not nearly as obnoxious as most movies about self-absorbed yuppies publicly working through their personal problems in the early '90s are. Levy and Kash, both wonderful comic actors, work well together and turn potentially unpleasant characters into warm, laid-back people you actually care about. Hemphill is also very funny as Levy's over-the-top lawyer. These actors manage to infuse a dose of levity into a wooden script basically devoid of jokes.

A nice, inoffensive TV movie, but the potentially hilarious and endearing performances are wasted on the script. Not recommended unless you're a real fan of the actors.
