Karen Black plays Zee, a recently divorced woman who falls into a romance with a confirmed bachelor, Eli (Michael Emil, the director's brother). Black's performance holds this slow-moving, talky comedy together; she portrays the uneasy, nervous woman with the skill she showed in her famous
roles of the 70s--FIVE EASY PIECES (1970) and NASHVILLE (1975). Emil isn't bad as the quirky bachelor who is obsessed with everything from his health to his sex life. Decent performances are not enough to save this movie, in which some scenes stretch on much longer than they should, making the
genuinely funny moments few and far between.
