See You in the Morning is a bad dream for those who’ve admired Alan J. Pakula’s best work.

Pakula produced, wrote and directed the semi-autobiographical story of a man torn between two families and two marriages.

Jeff Bridges is a Manhattan psychiatrist who tries earnestly to fit in with his new life with second wife Beth (Alice Krige) and her two kids, while remaining the most decent of dads to his own two kids. Their mother is played by Farrah Fawcett.

As dull as this sounds, it’s even more boring to watch. At just under two hours, it seems nearly interminable.

Pakula tried too hard to make this into a romantic comedy. Bridges’ character jokes to avoid talking about his feelings (some shrink!) while Krige is the guilt-ridden martyr type.
