Lovers and Other Strangers (1970)

3 out of 4 stars

What a delightful movie. The story centers around the upcoming wedding of Susan (Bonnie Bedilia) and Mike (Michael Brandon). Not only do they have a wedding to stress over but their families are not helping matters. Mike's brother and his wife Joan (Diane Keaton in her movie debut)are getting a divorce, Mike's friend Jerry only wants to sleep with Susan's cousin Brenda, Susan's sister (Anne Meara) and her husband are fighting over whose the boss in their relationship and Susan's father (Gig Young) is sleeping with her mother's cousin. I am sure that for 1970 this movie was very risque with talk of sex and gender roles but it is very tame by today's standards. It is still a very cute movie though. The all-star cast is amazing and the story is very funny. A great uplifting film.
