This movie, written by Neil Simon, is obviously adapted from a stage play. Not much is changed for this film version and that helps and hurts it. Most of the movie, which is nearly all dialogue as opposed to action, takes place in one room. This does allow for wonderful character development but also sometimes brought on a feeling of "Get on with it!" The cast is fantastic. Alan Arkin is perfect as the bored middle-class restauranteur who haplessly searches for the right woman to have an affair with. You can still think adultery is wrong and feel bad for Arkin's character because he plays up frustrated ennui so well. Sally Kellerman, Renee Taylor and Paula Prentiss play the women he meets, usually by chance. Each is pretty much a stereotype but a fully fleshed-out one so you believe them as people. Quirky is a good word to describe everybody in this movie. Although the film is a comedy, at its core it is an examination of how people deal with disappointment and stagnation in their lives. I think comedy often does a better job of showing the nature of the human experience than straight-up drama does.
