Updating BOB & CAROL & TED & ALICE by talltale October 16, 2004 - 3:14 PM PDT

The already-three-year-old movie MY BEST FRIEND'S WIFE is just now arriving on dvd. The delay, while no emergency, is still a bit surprising, since the film is all about sex, desire, wife-swapping and jealousy (these subjects usually sell, right--or am I living in some dream world?). The film attempts to update Paul Marzursky's famous 60s' would-be sex epic "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice." It makes several references to that film and, in fact, does update it and goes it one better: these couples actually do the deed. And while the movie starts off slow and very unsteady, it eventually finds its way into a believable, serious consideration of sex and friendship, as well as how the genders relate differently to adultery. It's funny, too--off and on--with Daniel London providing a Woody Allen-esque character (along with some of the laughs). John Stamos makes a sexy and attractive co-lead and it's wonderful to see Meredith Salenger back on screen, along with Jessica Walter and Tony Roberts in stereotypical parent roles. This one won't set the world aflame, but it's worth a watch.
