Henry Jaglom follows his Sitting Ducks [1981] with a similar opus. This is once again a talky comedy, in which the scripter-director puts his characters in a number of sitcom situations, feeds them the opening lines of their scenes and lets them embroider the rest on their own.

Starting from the basic premise that human beings suffer from their inability to communicate with their fellow men, Jaglom builds up a romance of sorts between a fresh divorcee who is still not emotionally rid of her husband, and a man who has been living on his own for some years.

Characters are built very much around the personality of the two main actors, Karen Black giving a beautiful performance, humorous, edgy, nervous and implying deep fears and pains hidden barely under the surface, and Michael Emil brings back many of the peculiarities of his part in Sitting Ducks.
