Rating: 3/5 -- makes the repetition and relative tameness of the primary plot seem all the more obvious

Rating: B- -- In Albert Brooks' second comedy, which is both funny and irritating (some of it by design), he plays a nuerotic film editor who's unable to sustain a normal relationship Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Nearly as much as Jerry Lewis, Albert Brooks's comic persona is defined by its unlikability. Full Review

Description by

A world-class neurotic, Robert Cole (Albert Brooks) just can't stop thinking about Mary (Kathryn Harrold). Especially after he breaks up with her. Fanatically obsessed with the beautiful bank exec, he repeatedly wins her back -- and then immediately loses her again by grilling her long-distance callers, harassing her business clients and dogging her every movement. But even as Robert and Mary head for another breakup, there's still hope for them yet. Because when it comes to true love, it ain't over 'til it's over.
