Two Couples Struggle With Mixed Emotions Jack Linden and Hank Evans are both good friends who teach English at a local community college. The two are competitive in all endeavors, including their careers and early morning runs together. Hank and Jack’s wives, Edith and Terry respectively are also best friends. The two families spend most of their free time together and when the kids go to sleep the alcohol is popped open, the music plays, and inhibitions are slowly thrown aside. It is within these dynamics that each individual dares to fulfill their own lusts. While the Evans and Lindens both love their spouses, they must also confront their regrets and mutual deficiencies. Hank is unhappy as a professor and truly wishes to pursue a career in writing; Jack desires a wife who possesses at least rudimentary domestic abilities, causing him to take out his frustration on Terry via verbal abuse. The women are also unsatisfied. Edith is fully aware that Hank hunts for other female playmates on the side, while Terry wishes to pursue a career of her own, not content with the role of a traditional housewife. Desperate for escape, the Lindens and Evans secretly swap partners and fulfill their sexual desires elsewhere. Jack, Hank, Terry, and Edith can all sense that something is awry – but they ignore it. The Lindens’ children, however, are fully aware that mommy and daddy are a little too intimate with the neighbors. Is it that both couples’ marriages have reached the end of the road, or are they merely infatuated with the risqué nature of their affairs? Would divorcing their current spouses and marrying anew lead to happiness? This movie is rated R for sexual content and language.
