Time Out says

Screenwriters Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin present a semi-autobiographical study of two people who have lived together successfully for years, but find that the act of marriage virtually destroys their relationship. Hawn and Reynolds play two screenwriters who keep the ceremony secret from everyone except their parents, but still find the pressures almost too much to bear. The script is sharply written, while Jewison is a lot more sensitive to the material than he was on that earlier Levinson-Curtin effort, And Justice For All. But though engaging and agreeable, the film is never wildly funny.
