A sophisticated romantic comedy highlighting the talents of Sharon Gless.
I enjoyed this movie. The light saxophone theme music sets the tone for a sophisticated romantic comedy. Set in a time when a woman who divorces her husband is still suspected of being a "bad" mother, this story follows a very likeable Sharon Gless in her battle to start a new life. Kevin Dobson is good as the very persistent construction worker who first falls for her legs and then for the woman herself. Gless is great as a very classy professor of human sexuality pursued by a very determined blue-collar guy with a gambling problem. My favourite scene? She meets his wonderful Italian family - and his mom (a tough sell as far as Sharon is concerned). She wins them over in a delightful and charming way. OK - I loved the final scene too. Anyway, the movie has a few plot problems and you do have to forgive the late 70's atmosphere (and attitudes) but I would recommend it if you enjoy sophisticated romantic comedies, and especially if you enjoy the work of Sharon Gless.
