Fully drawn characters and radiant performances make this a satisfying exploration of relationships and the middle-age psyche. Lucky (Nolte) and Phyllis (Christie) Mann remain close friends though intimacy between the husband and wife has long since cooled. Lucky has earned a solid reputation as a handy handyman who tends to more than lonely women's leaky faucets. He comes to the aid of Marianne Byron (Boyle), whose driven yuppie husband, Jeffrey (Miller), ignores her plea to have a child. Marianne has no problem letting Lucky do the job. Meanwhile, Phyllis meets Jeffrey on one of her long walks during which she mourns her estranged daughter, and the two begin their own affair. The Lucky puns grow tiresome quickly.
