Sarah Jessica Parker,
Gwyn Marcus has always wanted a marriage like her parents. She has just accepted the proposal of her boyfriend Matt, but she has misgivings about their future together. Her fear of commitment grows as she learns of the various affairs that her family is having. With her sister getting married and her brother already married, her mother is growing concerned about Gwyn's being the last single person in the family. But the more she thinks about marriage, the more she must search for the balance between career, marriage and family.Written by

I guess I look at marriage sort of the same way I look at Miami, you know, it's hot and it's stormy, and it's, you know, it's occasionally a little dangerous... but, you know, if it's really so awful, why is there still so much traffic?

Sarah Jessica Parker is a young, female version of Woody Allen. That's pretty much what you get with this movie. Everyone was criticizing Kenneth Branagh (and John Cusack, to a lesser degree) when they did their Woody impersonations in Celebrity and Bullets Over Broadway. But no one seemed to mind when Parker did it in this movie, which Woody Allen had no link to even though it feels that way. Add Mia Farrow to the mix, and the clone is perfected (nevermind the fact that Mia and Woody were estranged when this was made). I found a few funny moments and lines (the business with the monkeys and Parker's reaction to them is memorable, but again totally out of the Woody school). But in the end this is a second-rate Woody Allen film, best suited for rainy days when there is nothing else to watch and you stumble upon this on cable TV.
