After eight years of marriage, Marjorie Turner (Kirstie Alley) is tired of neglect from her husband (Scott Bakula) and condescension from her in-laws. So when her sister suggests she spice up her life with an affair, Marjorie is game - until the man she hooks up with dies in bed. Among the familiar faces ensnared in the web of ensuing complications are Sam Elliott, Jami Gertz, Bill Pullman, Carrie Fisher and Ed O'Neill. A dark and underrated modern screwball comedy.

Woody Allen’s brilliant romantic comedy set in New York City over a Thanksgiving holiday follows well-adjusted Hannah (Mia Farrow) and her slightly lost siblings Lee (Barbara Hershey) and Holly (Dianne Wiest), all playing virtual musical chairs with a gang of lovers (including Allen, Michael Caine, Max Von Sydow and Sam Waterston). With Lloyd Nolan and Margaret Sullivan (Mia’s real-life mom) as the women’s nostalgically careening parents, and Carrie Fisher as Holly’s poisonous best friend April. Winner of three Academy Awards, two for Best Supporting performances (Caine and Weist) and Best Screenplay for Allen.
