And So It Goes

Michael Douglas plays the misanthropic realtor Oren, and Diane Keaton is his whiny lounge singer neighbor Leah. A romantic comedy by this genre’s veteran Rob Reiner (HARRY UND SALLY).


Michael Douglas plays real estate agent Oren – he's misanthropic, profit-oriented, grouchy and cynical. He shoots at dogs that walk on his property with a paintball gun, he changes the pictures in a house before a viewing to match the ethnicity of the potential buyer, and he parks his car in such a way that there is no parking space left for his next door neighbors. And he’s not interested in trying to make friends with his fellow tenants at the idyllic lakeside fourplex called “Shangri-La”. The worst of them all is the lounge singer Leah (Diane Keaton), who can’t make it through a song without breaking into tears. Not surprisingly of all people it’s these unlikely candidates that fall for each other and behind Oren’s hard shell we see a soft core. In order to speed up the process, little Sarah arrives on the scene – the granddaughter he never knew he had. One day Oren’s estranged adult son Kyle shows up the night before starting a 9-month prison sentence and asks his dad to take care of 10-year-old Sarah. Oren is completely overwhelmed and tries to foist the girl on his neighbor Leah, who temporarily takes on the task. What happens next is utterly predictable but directed with confidence by WHEN HARRY MET SALLY director Rob Reiner. And Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas are clearly having fun. It's worth mentioning Frances Sternhagen who plays Douglas’ hard-nosed colleague with a deep smoker’s voice and an even more cynical sense of humor than her boss.
