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.

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

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

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.

What Eric Schaeffer has accomplished with Never Again may not, strictly speaking, qualify as revolutionary. But it's defiantly and delightfully against the grain.

It's a pleasure to see [Clayburgh] back in full force, having aged beautifully, and in a role that serves as such a neat bookend to An Unmarried Woman.

Schaeffer isn't in this film, which may be why it works as well as it does.

Now all we need is a flick about elderly queers in heat. No, The Dresser doesn't count.

Jeffrey Tambor's performance as the intelligent jazz-playing exterminator is Oscar-worthy.

Never Again doesn't quite rise above the conventions it attempts to deconstruct, but at its center are two gifted actors who are more than willing to take chances.

Though the characters are sometimes forced into madcap situations for the sake of adding yuks, the film works best when the protagonists are just being themselves

"Never Again" is a feel-good romance for real people. If you want a smart, mature romantic comedy, this is the one to see.

A very funny romantic comedy about two skittish New York middle-agers who stumble into a relationship and then struggle furiously with their fears and foibles.
Prairie Miller

A funny, raw, touching, ridiculous, outrageous and heartbreaking midlife romantic comedy, wrinkles and all
