A better story than you'd probably expect for a film of this kind of this vintage.
A whole lot better than most of the divorce-centric comedies of this ilk, mainly because it focuses on the characters and not the act of divorce itself.
A dreary little "comedy" about divorce back when it is was still a bit of a taboo subject. Today it just plays as boring.
Starting Over have a good entertaining and some good laughs that prove a good film. It's not the best movie by Brooks or Pakula, but it's a delightful and nice way to pass the time. Fresh.
A truly engaging comedy of modern manners. a love trangle, with two brilliant lead star performances by Burt Reynolds and the late Jill Clayburgh. Reynolds in one his finest performances as Phil Potter, a newly divorced man struggling to choose between a teacher Marilyn Holmberg, played so endearingly by Jill Clayburgh in a Oscar nominated performance, and his capricious, song writing ex-wife Jessica Potter, played by scene stealer Candice Bergen, who is marvelously funny, especially when she is singing to Burt with a voice that could wake the dead, her comedic talents are very evident here, there are other marvelous scenes like the church-sponsored divorced men's discussion group that Burt's a part of, it is hilarious with sharp witty dialogue. Terrific supporting performances from Charles Durning, Frances Sternhagen, Austin Pendleton, and Jay O. Sanders. A smart, warm romantic gem from the late 70s, smoothly directed by Alan Pakula, and wonderfully written by James L. Brooks. Highly Recommended.
