The question of why this film is being re-released is superseded by the question of who would want to watch it.

The incessant betrayals and confidences become monotonous after a time, and the film sinks into the familiar swamp of suburban futility.

At its best, Philip Frank Messina's show business comedy plays like a less acerbic, less Jewish triple episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
