BRAND NEW HD MASTER FROM A 4K SCAN OF THE ORIGINAL CAMERA NEGATIVE! First comes love, then comes marriage… then come loads of laughs in this critically acclaimed hit comedy. As Mike (Michael Brandon, Four Flies on Grey Velvet) and Susan (Bonnie Bedelia, Die Hard) prepare to walk down the aisle, the groom gets a case of cold feet. Turning to friends and family for support can send the couple running for matrimonial cover: Susan’s father is fooling around with her mother’s best friend; Mike’s brother is divorcing his high school sweetheart; his parents are living a loveless lie. The rocky road to happily-ever-after has never been so uproarious as in this vividly real and genuinely funny movie. Directed by Cy Howard with a screenplay by Renée Taylor, Joseph Bologna and David Zelag Goodman, based on the hit play by the husband-and-wife team of Taylor and Bologna. The stellar cast includes Bea Arthur (TV’s The Golden Girls and Maude), Richard Castellano (The Godfather), Harry Guardino (Madigan), Cloris Leachman (Scavenger Hunt), Gig Young (They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?) and Diane Keaton (The Good Mother) in her film debut. Oscar®-nominated for Supporting Actor (Castellano) and Adapted Screenplay (Bologna, Goodman, Taylor), it won the Oscar® for Best Song, “For All We Know,” music by Fred Karlin and lyrics by Robb Royer and Jimmy Griffin.
