Bye Bye Love


Time Out says

This anodyne domestic caper is one of those movies where you keep waiting for the ad breaks. The star power is strictly middle-ranking: an ill-at-ease Modine is recently divorced womaniser Dave; remarkably chummy Quaid is recently divorced Vic, stuck in blind-date purgatory; and Reiser is Donny, also recently divorced but still in love with his ex-wife. All three have kids, all three have custody during one weekend of meticulously organised fun and extra-curricular romantic intrigue. It's hard to be much concerned about these plastic people and their travails. Even so, you have to admit a certain grudging admiration for the way the slick construction and the stream of mildly amusing one-liners keep you watching despite yourself.
