This is actually a correction to the last geographical goof. They are all in a restaurant in NYC. They are at Helen's. They even say it several times, and they also make reference to the fact that it was a Nicks game. So they are supposed to be in NYC not LA. They have all flown in to NYC for the wedding. See more »

For married couples of at least 10 years and/or over 40, this is an entertaining and intelligent movie. Billy Crystal captures the emotions and angst of a certain age and time in one's life, when looking back and forward is done with some trepidation, and the results are, if you're honest, mixed. Put the kids to bed, tell the teenagers you're busy and see this one with your spouse. Well worth the video rental.
