Old Boyfriends


Time Out says

First feature for Joan Tewkesbury, an Altman associate who scripted Thieves Like Us and Nashville. Hesitating between its Old Hollywood ambitions and soap opera climax, it definitively blows a promising road movie story - of fucked-up West Coast psychologist Dianne Cruise (Shire) visiting three old boyfriends on a compulsive trip down memory lane. The failure owes something to slack direction, and probably more to the misogyny of Paul and Leonard Schrader's script, which contrives a distinctly reactionary mix of sentiment, morality, and melodrama.
