Goofs

As a urologist, Billie could have been able to continue to work throughout her pregnancy. Therefore. they could have saved up enough money to provide for future needs, like daycare or a nanny when she and Greg were at work. Only if her pregnancy was at risk, would she be forced to stop working the entire term of pregnancy. See more »

Another film lost to technology
15 January 2002 | by midnightraneSee all my reviews

This really is a good film, provided you're in the right mood. The 'mood' being one of relaxation and contentment. If you're not, you'll probably hate this film, or least you'll hate the way it makes you feel. But if you are already somewhat subdued and in the mood for a little 'none-too-heavy' movie entertainment, this is a superb choice. It examines life, love, marriage and parenting from various angles and perceptions. It starts a wee bit slow so bear with it. It goes down smooth and leaves a satisfyingly sweet after taste. Karla DeVito's 'sweet smile' is worth the price of admission alone. Sadly, this film's poor reception and the advent of DVD technology will most likely relegate it to dusty shelves and Beta machines-if it hasn't already. 8/10.
