The two of them are thrown together during a series of weddings and funerals and they share a bond of adultery. Not their own, but their spouses. At first the responsibility each of them feels toward their respective families, prevents them from taking their attraction for each other any further. As a result we are treated to a bitter sweet suspense. Harry and Maria, whilst not consummating their relationship, use the situation to gain a subtle retribution on their partners.
In addition to the central love story there are lots of side plots. These conspire to create more weddings and funerals than in any other film I have seen. Of course this is the perfect excuse to throw our controversial couple together again and again. I also enjoy watching Larry's son and Father interact. Both are interesting characters.
Along with the subplots, there are a host of supporting characters who do a lot to make the story more real. Larry's father and son are both terrific and the illicit lovers who start it all are wonderfully shallow. Here we see the true 80's love affair; hedonistic and almost unrepenting.
Cousins renews your faith in human nature. It recharges the batteries of your romance and makes you feel like doing something wonderful for your special loved ones. If you are tired of watching films where sex seems to be used as a weapon between enemies, then give this film another look.

Great romance movie. One of my favorites with Ted Danson. The end is a little too perfect, which gives it a "movie" feel but otherwise very entertaining. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
