Micki + Maude is a hilarious farce. For his part, Dudley Moore is in top antic form, and Amy Irving has never been better.
Debuting screenwriter Jonathan Reynolds has constructed a farce of simple, classical proportions about a man who accidentally gets his wife and new girlfriend pregnant at virtually the same time.
The host of a silly TV show which does features on things like the food at an election night celebration, Moore rarely gets to see his attorney wife (Ann Reinking) due to her hectic schedule, finding time only for a quickie in the back of a limousine.
On the job for his show, Moore meets comely Amy Irving, who easily seduces him on their next encounter. Premise is set up shortly thereafter, when both women announce that they are pregnant.
