Al Pacino, Tuesday Weld, Dyan Cannon and Alan King star in Arthur Hiller's charming romantic comedy about love, marriage and children who are a lot more sensible than their parents. Life is getting complicated for Broadway playwright Ivan Travalian (Pacino). His flaky wife Gloria (Weld) is moving in with her lover, his director hates his new play and his leading lady (Cannon) is a terrfied movie star who's never been on the stage. With five children to look after (most of them Gloria's), a budding romance with his leading lady, and a producer (King) demanding a rewrite, it's no wonder the emotionally and financially unstable Ivan starts to exhibit all kinds of irrational behaviour. Funny and offbeat, this witty film by New York playwright Israel Horovitz features endearing performances and a cameo by the comedians Bob and Ray.
