Movie Info

A tale about two lovelorn fifty something New Yorkers. Christopher is an exterminator-cum-jazz musician who, after years of one-night stands, begins to question his sexual orientation. Grace is a divorcee whose daughter has just left home for college. Grace is looking to jump-start her life anew. Grace's best friends push her to try dating again, while Christopher's fellow musician doesn't quite know what to do about his buddy's tentative game plan. When a blind date for Grace goes bad, she ducks into a gay bar--and meets first-time patron Christopher. The circumstances are so wrong that the two are immediately drawn to each other. But as with any romantic relationship at any age, their fears--both mutual and individual--may prevent them from being happy together. Is Grace's credo "never again" a self-fulfilling prophecy?

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

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.

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

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.

Clayburgh and Tambor are charming performers; neither of them deserves Eric Schaeffer.

Audience Reviews for Never Again


Cute. Funny...I have to admit that I laughed really hard when she got caught in the sex suit. Now that was precious!
