I have only one complaint about this film -- it's not available on DVD, and I can't figure out why. Wake up, Paramount!
"Starting Over" features funny supporting roles for Charles Durning as Phil Potter's older psychiatrist brother and Frances Sternhagen as his sister Marva Potter.The movie has many funny moments,like when Candice Bergen,as Phil's ex-wife breaks out in song and Phil's reaction to this musical moment.Burt Reynolds has said in interviews that Phil Potter in "Starting Over" was his personal favorite film role.I can see why.
It's great that they've brought this film out on DVD. Now if someone would just release another great Clayburgh film, An Unmarried Woman, on DVD, I would be first in line to buy it.
I own most of his movies <Presumed Innocent><Klute><Pellican Brief><All The president's Men><Sophie's Choice><The Devi's Own> and this one.
I love them all. The great thing about this director is he is both good at romantic and action movies.
This one is a small story about Burt Reynolds who just got divorsed and meets this woman Jill Clayburgh who lives alone. She is kind of a unique lady that sometimes hard to deal with. She is like a climate that always changes so easily.
On the other hand, his ex-wife even though had divorsed with him, she kept contact with him. I think she wants him back.
The other problem with Burt is he is afraid of a new relationship.
He do loves Jill but is afraid of sleeping with her which makes her angry. She thinks he doesn't love her because of that.
He goes to a group meeting where divorsed men talks about their problem. That meeting is funny as well. Some of the actors are quite well known in that meeting and I enjoyed that meeting very much.
But the biggest thing I laughed at was But Raynolds' laughing. It was so funny when he laughs. I don't know why but it just was so funny that I laugh out loud too whenever he laughes.
When Burt reunited with his ex-wife I was kind of sad but after all when he ran into his girlfriend and confesses that he truely loves her and the movie ends as a happy ending, I was relieved.
As I said, the movie was not a perfect one and I don't even know I will watch this again but for this once, it was quite enjoyable. Especially because there was Burt Reynolds.

Very 1980's. Fun if you were there as an adult. A little feminism, some romance, a gorgeous and comedic Candace Bergen. Read morePublished 7 months ago by J. D. Portnoy
