Audience Reviews for Middle Age Crazy

[font=Verdana]Bobbie Lee (Bruce Dern) is turning 40 and cannot take the pressure of being married to sex-loving Sue Ann (Ann-Margret), or that his college age son is dropping out, or the pressure put upon him at his job. So Bobbie Lee decides buy a new sports car and have an affair to get away from all this pressure. Bobbie Lee, feeling rejected and abandon has an affair of her own. At the end they finally decide to talk and jump into their hot tub fully clothed and make up. Credits roll. The problem, or should I say one of the problems, is that it is hard to feel sorry for Bobbie Lee since, looking at the home they live in, he obviously is making a good living and has a wife who loves him and whose only fault seems to be is that she likes to have sex with him. Poor Bobbie Lee. The script tries to make a point about middle age but it just comes off as dull and in the end nothing much happens. The big question is how this ever got made as a big budgeted feature and not as a movie of the week. The cast is competent and it’s good to see Dern play a regular guy for a change. Worth a look if you like either Bruce or Ann-Margret but even fans will have a tough time keeping focus. [/font]
