Don't understand why the reviews for this are so awful. I thought this movie and the acting was fantastic.

These people convinced me that they are REAL people, a bit exaggerated to be sure, but these couples CAN happen. In today's society, on your own street, we can have various levels of economic prosperity.

A poignant comedy about three contemporary married couples whose lives become intertwined despite their radically different lifestyles and past. Radically different jobs, upbringing, social status. They are brought together by their children's, or step-child's in one case, school play. The play centers around the 60's, something 2 of 3 couples know anything about first hand.

This is one fantastic story about the way things are, not as we would have them. Try going to other strangers homes and have a conversation. That's our couples situation at first, but they meld pretty well despite their present lives which are quite different.

In the end, all that glamour wears off and each couple finds their marriages in real trouble for several reasons each encounter through the film. I found this film entirely watchable and indeed, recomendable. If you are adult enough to appreaciate the human situation, one of good times and really bad times... check this out.

Ultimately, the title: Married To It, simply means you married it, you deal with it. If marriage means anything, it means hanging on, no matter what or whatever, because the alternative has no satisfaction for sure either.

This movie at times makes a single guy glad he's single. Lot's of couple drama. Lots of slow spots, it's a good movie to see with a date. Yes, classic chick flick.

The problem with this film is the characters. These aren?t real people, they don?t convince. Real people don?t talk like that and they are so obviously fictional people created by a writer who doesn't have a clue as to how real people are and talk. The cast does try, but Stockard Channing is the only cast member that actually rises above the material, she is the only one you care about at all, and Mary Stuart Masterson is pretty good. It isn't a complete disaster, there are some interesting scenes between the cliche's. It could of used a little more trimming as well, it overlong at an hour and 52 minutes.

One of the most boring movies I've ever seen. There's nothing particularly awful about it, but it's so dull that I was able to catch up on my emails without missing anything.

This was rubbish! Nothing actually happens, it's all about relationships and that. BORING!

Also has the worst ending of any film ever.

It does feature a woman with giant red 1980s glasses though. They were entertaining for a few seconds.
