A 1992 {{Dramedy}} film directed by (and co-starring) Creator/WoodyAllen.

After their friends Jack (Creator/SydneyPollack) and Sally (Creator/JudyDavis) split up, the marriage between college professor Gabe (Allen) and magazine editor Judy (Creator/MiaFarrow) encounters several difficulties: Gabe becomes close to one of his students, aspiring writer Rain (Creator/JulietteLewis), while Judy takes it upon herself to introduce Sally to one of her colleagues, becoming dissatisfied when they start a relationship. Meanwhile, Jack and Sally's separation wildly ranges from [[AmicablyDivorced amicable]] to hostile, when it's revealed each is jealous of the other having found a new love interest.

!! Examples of tropes:

* ComedyOfRemarriage: Subverted.
* TheDitz: Sam, Jack's new girlfriend, a good-natured (and much younger) aerobics instructor whose main interests are health foods and fads.
--> '''Man''': "If astrology were true - "
--> '''Sam''': "It is true! It is totally, totally, totally provable, you know?"
--> '''Woman''': "Provable how? From gypsies?"
--> '''Sam''': "Well, it's totally logical, right? You know, why wouldn't the position of the planets have an influence on our personalities?"
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: Gabe states Jack and Sally will be back together in a year. He's right, but ''Gabe'' and ''Judy'' will break up.]]
* HappilyMarried: Rain's parents are happy and content, in stark contrast to Jack, Sally, Gabe and Judy.
* HighClassCallGirl: Before leaving Sally and finding a girlfriend, Jack hires consummate professional "Shawn Grainger".
* IceQueen: Jack sees Sally as one, of the "bossy neurotic wife" variety; a major source of trouble throughout their marriage has been [[spoiler: Sally's apparent frigidity]], combined with her upper-class tastes.
* MeaningfulName: "Rain", named after poet Creator/RainerMariaRilke.
* {{Mockumentary}}
* RealitySubtext. ''And HOW''.
* TeacherStudentRomance: Everything seems to be headed that way for Gabe and Rain, but [[spoiler: he changes his mind after kissing her at her birthday party]]. Doesn't make him happier in the long run, though.
* TypeCasting: In 1992 Creator/JulietteLewis was better known as a precocious, provocative young woman type - ''CapeFear'' had been released the year before.
