Schaeffer has written a clever, plausible, funny, and romantic film.

By turns touching, raucously amusing, uncomfortable, and, yes, even sexy, Never Again is a welcome and heartwarming addition to the romantic comedy genre.

This film is just plain awful, despite the efforts of two enormously talented and likable stars who are ultimately done in by an impossible script.

When a director deliberately sends his own film down such a well-worn path, you know you're in the presence of a truly bad director.

Tambor and Clayburgh make an appealing couple - he's understated and sardonic, she's appealingly manic and energetic. Both deserve better.

I never thought I'd say this, but I'd much rather watch teens poking their genitals into fruit pies!

Schaeffer has crafted a winsomely appealing love story for -- surprise! -- the over-50 set.

There's something deeply creepy about Never Again, a new arrow in Schaeffer's quiver of ineptitudes.

As shameless a love story as anything that Hollywood has ever done.

Despite these annoyances, the capable Clayburgh and Tambor really do a great job of anchoring the characters in the emotional realities of middle age.

If Never Again is the best film we can get about older adult sexuality, it's no wonder we're not seeing more movies like it.

Sex and romance after 50? Here's proof that it not only exists, a movie about it can be funny and cute.

After a while, Never Again gets so busy celebrating ageless virility that it forgets to tell a decent story.

Tambor and Clayburgh are actually both very likeable in their roles, but the script is just miserable.

In theory, a middle-aged romance pairing Clayburgh and Tambor sounds promising, but in practice it's something else altogether -- clownish and offensive and nothing at all like real life.

An intelligent, funny look at dating and relationships among the middle-aged.

There are enough things that poke out rather boldly from Never Again's modest proportions to keep it verging on interesting. And not all of them are strapped to Jill Clayburgh's waist.

Just offbeat enough to keep you interested without coming close to bowling you over.
