    A bit slow-moving, but it was unique. There are movies with similar plots, but none done quite like this one. It was very believable and real.

    Ben and Katie Jordon (Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer) are a couple who after 15 years of being married to each other, are trying to figure out what has gone wrong in his marriage. They want to separate, but decide to stick around for the sake of their children. While their kids are away at summer camp, they reflect over how they met each other in flashback and present day and the good and bad times they had. Close friends of the couple (Rita Wilson, Rob Reiner) chime in with their observations. When all is said and done, will the couple uncover any reasons to stay together?

    Hey...If I want relationship trouble I'll get a wife and start picking on all that she does. Pfeiffer was good though.
