He lives with two of his ex-wives - sisters Barbara and Catherine - in an effort to keep family together, namely his two daughters, Helen and Margaret, who each have a different sister as their mother. Dave still maintains a sexual relationship with both sisters - whenever the mood suits any of them - while he openly has other sexual relationships.

Compelling Drivvle
7 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a seriously awful film. Pointless, depressing, self indulgent. Well over an hour of my life that I will never get back. Compelling drama? Yes of course because I was dying to see if the film actually got any better! And when it was over guess what? It never got better than the first 10 minutes. You can watch this movie on fast forward and know the plot line, guess the script (i still can;t believe there was a script involved) and might make it marginally more entertaining. No idea why Sigourney Weaver got involved in this as the cast list looked like it might have been worth while. Never been so deflated. Glad we didn't pay to watch this!
