Lightheartedly conveys that the sources of marital love can be renewed even after a period of spiritual dryness.

There is no need to run right out. See a Matinee.

It's a film for people in a serious, long-term committed relationship--I think they have the most chance of understanding everything the film has to say.

Reiner coaxes yet another surprisingly adept performance by Bruce Willis who once again does not lay his finger on a gun, and gets some movement from one of my least favorite gorgeous actresses, Michelle Pfeiffer.

Willis, meanwhile, has somehow become one of Hollywood's finest actors.

Thanks to Mr. Willis and Ms. Pfeiffer, The Story of Us has moments of warmth and charm.

Yet, for its flaws, you really want it to work out, and the strong performances from its leads, some sharp writing and some truly funny and touching moments are clearly beneficial to the overall proceedings.

The Story of Us is flawed, but not seriously enough to curtail its ability to function as unpretentious entertainment.

I liked how Rob Reiner balanced brisk montages of the couple's 15-year-plus history with pauses at the significant moments that marked their marriage's dissolution.

Could be described as a sequel to "When Harry met Sally," you know, like fifteen years later and with a heavier drama to comedy ratio.

Every time 'Story' wanders perilously close to the border of soap opera, the authors steer it back on course.
