THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A SMALL AFFAIR.
Two affluent New York City couples see their long-time marriages challenged by infidelity and new realizations. One of those regrettable projects that took years to complete and saw its budget balloon, only to end up as one of history’s worst box-office disasters. Starts out like a potential Woody Allen-type comedy but turns into an absurd joke where no one involved is able to save face, especially not Charlton Heston as a psychotic billionaire. Undignified, even though it’s aimed at a mature audience.
