The stars of WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY can be thankful that this dismal romantic comedy went straight to commercial cable and then was banished to the bottom shelves of most video stores after a very limited release.
Artificially inseminated Sally (Rita Rudner) flies from New York to California and poses as a magazine interviewer to meet wine magnate Simon Farrell (Dudley Moore), the father of her unborn baby. Though Sally is seven months pregnant, Simon, not knowing he's the father, seduces Sally, then dumps
her. She commiserates with Ruth (Christine Lahti), an eccentric bed-and-breakfast owner, who gives her the lowdown on Simon's sleazy history.
