Just Between Friends

  • Film
0 Love It
In this pseudo-sophisticated weepie, the ongoing relationships are those between two buddy seismologists, and between a loving wife and her lonely female newscaster friend who is having an affair with one of the quake-quacks, who just happens to be married to the aforesaid wife (a fit but wizened MTM). As is usual in such cases, the wife is the only person not to know what is going on, but after the adulterer's death in an auto smash while attending an anti-nuclear rally in Washington, she does find out. And the adulteress is pregnant...Even given the sensitive performances and fitfully humorous script, the end product is exactly what might be expected to eradicate stains from white-collar conscience: soap. But for those who can pause-button the mind, it works.
