Irreconcilable Differences

This is essentially about the excesses of the Hollywood lifestyle, the egomania it generates, and how success and failure can change 'normal' people into monsters overnight. O'Neal and Long both turn in sensitive and gently comic performances as a couple consumed by it all, and Drew Barrymore is superb as the neglected daughter caught in the middle. It ruthlessly parodies film industry types, and the superficial Beverly Hills set, by way of one-liners, some truly touching moments, and a great cast. Lovely.
