A common thread provides the bond that draws three diverse couples together, ultimately leading to a friendship through which they explore the foibles of life and love in "Married To It," an engaging look at contemporary relationships and perspectives, directed by Arthur Hiller. There's John and Iris (Beau Bridges and Stockard Channing), a jaded social worker and the wife of many years who sees him through it all, has given him two children (now preteens) and only of late has come to realize that he's given up on her and on life in general; Chuck and Nina (Robert Sean Leonard and Mary Stuart Masterson), an ambitious investment broker and his wife, a school psychologist; and Leo and Claire (Ron Silver and Cybill Shepherd), a toy manufacturer and his second wife, a sophisticated woman of society who is unable to make a connection with his daughter, Lucy (Donna Vivino). A school function and commitment to a committee bring them together, and they soon find that although they each compete in different arenas of life, they are in the end not so different from one another after all. In fact, they soon come to depend and rely upon their newly founded friendships more than any of them could ever have imagined possible. Hiller has crafted an emotionally stirring study of want, need and expectation that will be readily identifiable to just about anyone who has taken part in the game of life. And it's skillfully delivered through an outstanding ensemble cast, highlighted by the exceptional work of Stockard Channing, a gifted actress who seems to thrive in a project like this.Read more ›

When I read the other reviews I was stunned. Having just seen this movie and looking it up to buy it I cruised the reviews. What a shock. Clearly having lived through the sixties and hearing the truth about Woodstock was considered nothing to even be mentioned in their reviews. This Movie is funny, and it shows how easy it is for people to forget the importance of making a life with another person. How imperative it is to trust while still laughing outloud. In no way do I disrespect the opinions of others. I just don't see how this movie can be considered bland. You have trickery, twists and turns. It takes a bit of caring for the characters to like this movie. With this cast that was not difficult. It takes some intelligence to understand the plotline but not so much that one must be in MENSA. It is a rainy day laugh out loud movie for people who understand the jokes from the sixties. For people who lived through the horrible loss of our leaders in the sixties finally someone has found a way to express it. Bravo.

This is quite a good cast in service of a so-so story. These three couples have little in common beside the school where they meet at a PTA conference. The acting of Mary Stuart Masterson is first class. In fact the acting of the three female leads keeps the whole thing from descending into a treacly mess. The final scenes with the children performing a school skit to Joni Mitchell's "Circle Game" was amazing. I'm a sucker for happy endings and this movie left me with a a big smile on my face

Format: VHS Tape
Sweet but awkward movie about three couples weathering their marital differences and building friendships. The acting was good, but there was something about the writing that left one somewhat unconvinced that these people could grow to care about each other. Cybil Shepard does a creditable job making us care about an essentially unsympathetic character (part of the writing problem). Mary Stuart Masterson turns in her usual natural and thoughtful work. But watch for yet another outstanding performance by Stockard Channing as Iris -- her scene with Beau Bridges on the balcony of the mayoral party displays an emotional intensity and honesty about many-years-married couples.
The movie itself rates a 3, but the performances rate a 5; I therefore give this a 4.

Very good movie. It handles modern problems in a mature manner. It has a happy ending and leaves you with a good feeling about friends and family.

Decent quality DVD, good flick, liked the combination of cast. Owned it in VHS, so when I found it on DVD, I was quite happy.

Very true to live situations everyone can relate to. Not over done and Ron Silver 's role as a divorced father is excellent.
