Okay movie. I had not seen this before. I guess for me the main problem was the two main characters were both married to other people and both mature and frumpy enough to know better.
He's a construction worker dad of two and she's a housewife who is not working as she needs to be available for her ailing father.
Neither of their spouses are awful or treat them badly, where you could even understand why they might stray. Both spouses are also unremarkable, dull, just like our two leads.
I didn't buy the connection between the two at all. Not to say the acting is bad, it's not at all, they just don't make a convincing pair.
This just feels very based towards a late 30's up market, but I'm now there myself and also married "forever" and I can't even relate to the pair of them. I can't see either what was so bad in their current partners, or what was so great about the pair of them.
Okay tv viewing, but definitely Meryl has done better.
