DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - Older adults are the target audience for this comedy, but even they are likely to not enjoy this fairly laugh-free film. Fans of any of the featured stars will be disappointed. Sex talk and adult themes make the film inappropriate for children, who wouldn't be interested, anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
By now, everyone's heard all the bad industry buzz surrounding Town & Country, a planned 1999 release that is only now seeing the inside of movie houses. Such a checkered production history is bound to color many reviewers' opinions, but don't dismiss the sure-to-be bad notices as just a byproduct of predisposed bias--any pan is completely deserved, for this infidelity comedy certainly bears the lack of fizz so characteristic of films left on the shelf way too long.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These types of movies show the advantage of having actual moviegoer opinions. This was apparently not the movie most people thought it was going to be, so beware. Overall, it was not a well liked movie. Adult females enjoyed it the most, but that's not saying much since most of them didn't rate it very high. There were a lot of comments about it being very funny, but there were just as many negative comments about the poor storyline showing adultery and sexual activity.

Adult males rated it a bit lower than the ladies. There were a lot of negative comments, so I strongly recommend taking advantage of them before deciding if this movie is one you might enjoy. For most of you, I suspect it is NOT a movie you are likely to find entertaining.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
I guess this is more of a "chick flick," because I didn't care much for it, but my wife enjoyed it. It did have it moments, but it was pretty boring between these moments, at least for me and I suspect most other males. Fortunately, I did hear some moviegoers comment, as they left, that they were glad they didn't pay to see this movie. However, others comments that it was funny. I'll admit, it does have some very funny scenes, just not enough of them.
My recommendation: Guys, go with your wife to see Town and Country. It's an OK movie, with some decent laughs. Then it will be your turn to pick the movie. :-)


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Porter Stoddard (Warren Beatty) is a well-known New York architect with a supremely successful life. But after a series of comic missteps, he finds his devoted wife Ellie (Diane Keaton) is suspicious of his whereabouts and his soon-to-be adult children (Josh Hartnett and Tricia Vessey) don't seem to need him anymore. Meanwhile, Mona (Goldie Hawn), Porter's childhood friend, has just found out her husband Griffin (Garry Shandling) is having an affair, just as Griffin, his best friend, is on the verge of leaving his old life behind.

Shocked that Mona has now filed for divorce, Porter tries to pull his own life together before it's too late. But instead, he only winds up making matters worse. As Mona and Ellie ponder the foolish choices men make, Porter slips into a series of bizarre comic adventures. Soon he and Mona grow dangerously close as life with Ellie begins to fall apart. Not knowing what to do, he does what any other self-respecting American male would do - he escapes with his best friend to search for some meaning to their quietly disintegrating lives.

Along the way they meet up with Eugenie (Andie MacDowell), a jet-setting heiress, and her daffy eccentric parents (Charlton Heston and Marian Seldes); Auburn (Jenna Elfman), the free-spirited owner of a bait and tackle shop; and Alex (Nastassja Kinski), a beautiful cellist who may or may not be carrying Porter's child.

But just as it becomes evident neither man is the person he thought he was, each decide to use the one final weapon they have left -- honesty. Suddenly the lives of both couples come together in a raucous denouement as they try to reclaim the part of themselves they seemed destined to forget.
