Aroview: After being deserted by her husband, a resentful suburban Mom (Allen) turns to the bottle and the arms of her neighbour (Costner), an ex-sportsman on the decline, while her four rebellious daughters try to steer her back into life's main stream.
With many scenes spilling over with self-pity and bitter humour, this has a thoroughly adult tone, remaining diverting and polished throughout. Critics have been divided over the abrupt final twist, yet it does strike a note of sour irony fully in keeping with the preceding portrait of middle-class discontent.
