About the Movie

Brilliant comedian/actor Albert Brooks takes an incisive look at the state of modern relationships with charming results that are right on target. Brooks portrays Robert Cole, a Hollywood film editor whose romance with a beautiful bank officer, Mary Harvard (Kathryn Harrold), has reached a point of no return. They go their separate ways; and Robert is magnanimous in hoping that she will be happy without him - as long as she is miserable as he is without her. Robert has encountered a modem dilemma: he'd like to settle down with Mary, yet can't help wondering if there's some perfect someone out there waiting for him. Only by leaving Mary can he look for her, but at the same time he's liable to lose the best relationship he's ever had.
