CAN A MARIAGE SURVIVE 15 YEARS OF MARRIAGE?
Ben and Katie Jordan (Bruce Willis, Michelle Pfeiffer) have been married for 15 years, but find it is increasingly difficult to stay together. Saturday Night Live veteran Alan Zweibel co-wrote this film, which is why a drama about adult relationships is packed with funny lines. That’s not as big an issue as the fact that it’s pretty hard to understand what this couple is arguing about. They clearly love each other and their spats are never about anything important. But there is some truth to this tale, I suppose; the stars give fair performances.

Quote: “Marriage is the Jack Kevorkian of romance.” (Wilson)
