Manhattan architect Porter Stoddard (Warren Beatty) is a man in trouble. His wife Ellie (Diane Keaton) has found out about his affair with cellist Alex (Nastassja Kinski) and thrown him out of the house as a result. Porter wants to mend the rift, but wherever he goes he always seems to begin another affair. Eventually, after flings with Mona (Goldie Hawn), Eugenie (Andie MacDowell), and Auburn (Jenna Elfman), Porter makes it back to New York; but can he make it up to Ellie?

This film seems to split opinion on age lines. If you're young it's probably not worth your rental dollar but if you are old enough to remember when Hawn and Beatty were the hottest things around you may have much more sympathy with the mid life (OK old age) crisis depicted here. I found it laugh out loud funny at several points.
So if you are old, well educated, and are not prejudiced against rich Americans I think you'll like it. Wonderful shots of the insanity of the Hamptons by the way.

NOTE: A longer version of this review can be seen by clicking on the comment box at the bottom.

During the first half hour I wondered if the director, of no reputation, had a visual eye to rival the Stanley Kubrick's and the Ridley Scott's of the film world. The opening helicopter shot looking down on New York before tilting up to see the city skyline looks amazing. And there is a scene at night in front of a neon lit Ferris wheel which looks divine. The visuals had a solid three dimensional quality to them which reminded me of Angel Heart, directed by ad man Alan Parker. This made me realise that the film looked more like a shampoo advert then it did a normal film, or reality. Every shot was so fussily lit with surfaces gleaming or revealing rough textures that it started to look silly. The film is too glossy for its own good.

Ryan O'Neil played the lead in Kubrick's brick of a film Barry Lyndon. He was an unresponsive dead weight which sucked that film of a much needed catalyst for action. Warren Beatty's performance reminded me of him. He's a diffident, indifferent sort of man on screen. He underplays and never really shows a strong emotion. Which is fine, and is very appealing, but in his other films there are events swirling chaotically around him. His lack of strong reaction seems pleasantly different to the usual in a film like Reds or Dick Tracey. In this film though, he has no plot to work against. He is required to move, to take action and respond fully to situations in order to drive the film onwards. Which he fails to do, making the film stutter along from time to time in between long stagnant sections of nothing much.

The tone of the film is a bit odd as well. It's not an overt comedy with deliberately funny things happening or being said.

RE: Waste of Time. 22 Sept. 2002
By J. Miller - Published on
Format: DVD
Unfortunately Town & Country was a total waste of time and good talent. Everything about this movie was painfully bad, from the writing to the directing to the uninspired acting of a tremendously talented cast. The movie just never took off and lacked any spark of intelligence or energy. Do not waste your time or money.

All Star Cast Couldn't Save the Script, and Naturally 10 Feb. 2002
By Tsuyoshi - Published on
"Inconsistent" is the keyword of "Town and Country." I mean, the keyword of how to explain the failure of the film. Maybe I'm mistaken, but when I watched it in theater in Japan, the touch of photography slightly changes in the last 30 minutes. At first, the colors and the light of the film are soft, but near the ending they get suddenly sharper and things look more distinct. And maybe I'm mistaken again, but the opening credit has it "Joshua Hartnett" while in the ending credit "Josh Hartnett," the way he is usually known now.
What I want to say is, as you know, "Town and Country" has experienced several re-writes because of negative response from the viewers at the screen test. But to re-write or re-shoot a film is not unusual these days -- "Fatal Attration" is one good example -- but in this case, the bad reaction from the audience could have been predicted with ease. Check out the story. The hero, who suddenly turns a philanderer when his should be well mature, is played by none other than Warren Beatty (come on!); he has an affiar with a beautiful cellist (sexy Nastassja Kinski) and his friend's wife (ever gorgeous Goldie Hawn); and then, he goes on to have another one (apparently) with Andie MacDowell and Jenna Elfman. He regrets (why not?) and goes back to his wife Diane Keaton, and asks to be forgiven, and ... she forgives!! Okay, this is an ultimate fantasy for men, I understand, but no one, male or female, buys that idea. So, Buck Henry was called as script-doctor, but even his talent could do nothing. As a result, sometimes the film looks like a romance; sometimes a farce (and not a bad one when Gary Shandling is allowed to do his stuff): sometimes very serious and ... forget it. By now, you got my point. The film is always apologetic for what it is based on. Whoever gave this impossible script a green light?
At the climax ceremony scene, many co-stars hurriedly show up one by one -- Elfman, MacDowell, Kinski, and Heston -- but so hurriedly go away that this final showdown, which could be used as a good slapstick farce, vanishes without a trace. It is as if they got other commitments. Maybe they did. It looks as if they are running away, and if so, it's a wise decision.

Not Worth It 23 Mar. 2004
By shizly - Published on
Format: DVD
Do not waste your time. In spite of the cast, this movie is a whopping dud. Meandering and unfulfiling. A shame. I'd give it zero stars, but the system won't let me.

Should get zero if they allowed it! 19 Oct. 2001
By Bil Antoniou - Published on
Format: DVD
I doubt I will see a worse movie this year or next. After three years of rewrites, reshoots and re-edits, Warren Beatty's latest vehicle is released and falls mightily flat with a huge crash. All the post-production hoopla did nothing but destroy the film's chances of ever finding any artistic success or adding any glimmer to the careers of those involved. Beatty and Garry Shandling are idiot actors in idiotic roles as two men who can't stop cheating on their wives. Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton hardly fare any better as the women who are being betrayed by these philandering gits (this is a very far cry from The First Wives Club). All the other talented performers, from Jenna Elfman to Andie MacDowell to Joshua Hartnett, are wasted in thankless roles that for the most part don't even make any sense. The film's script has absolutely no humour beyond the odd moment, and most of its scenes end without ever having gone anywhere. Even Beatty can't avoid the fact that he is just too old to be in something so ridiculous; with no character strength written in, how are we supposed to believe that all these gorgeous women a third his age would fall for this twelve hundred year-old goofball? The enjoyment level here is equal to a non-novocaine-assisted drilling in a back-alley dentist's chair. Unbelievable that is written by the man who wrote To Die For and co-wrote Heaven Can Wait with Beatty.

Worst film with so many stars that I have seen for quite some time. So many scenes were so pitiful. Nothing funny about this movie. All of the characters were pathetic.
