Movie Info

After 20 years of marriage, Steve Giardino (Alan Alda) and his wife Jackie (Ann-Margret) agree to a divorce in this situation comedy. The focus is on both of them as they suffer through matchmaking, blind dates, and their new life as eligible singles. Donna (Mary Kay Place) is Jackie's friend, while Mel Arons (Hal Linden) is the confidante of the vain but likeable Steve. Steven worries that he will never find anyone decent to date until he meets the pretty Dr. Kay Hutton (Veronica Hamel). Jackie

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (5)

Has little of importance to say about marriage, divorce, or the dating game. And the four lead characters are thoroughly uninteresting.

Spirituality and Practice

Beautifully understated work by Hal Linden and John Shea suffocated by Alda's self-indulgent, surface-dwelling fortysomething angst.
