SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR

The shelf-life of this particular movie has certainly come due as Bernard Slades two character hit play of the same name has certainly weathered over the years with this story of an adultutrous couple decides to be faithful to each other and meet on one clandestine weekend each year at the same seaside resort that they first paired together Ellen Burstyn and Alan Alda do their best with this very lukewarm material that somehow lags between early Neil Simon comedy and more profound playwrighting. Has some gorgeous coastal scenery as the movie tries to "open up" several scenes throughout the course of the rather episiodic proceedings. Ultimately not terribly funny or meaningful, and it's very difficult to feel anything for these rather self-absorbed people.
