Poor Jake. A very
successful novelist, his marriage is not so
successful. In fact, his wife wants to leave him.
So in an effort to help him through this crisis,
the women in his life come to his rescue. Sort
of. Theres his boisterous sister who bosses
him around, his sardonic analyst who seems to
enjoy taunting him, his grown daughter whos
wise beyond her years, and his revered first wife
who is clueless but with good reason. But
heres the problem the conversations
are in his imagination. He even talks with his
daughter when she was just a child, and has
poignant dialogs with his first wife who, by the
way, is dead. Imagination invades the reality,
especially when struggling to discuss the
marriage with his estranged wife, or trying to
decide on his future with his new girlfriend. The
result is a moving romantic comedy with laughter
and tears as only Neil Simon can craft a story.
It seems of little surprise
that folks might differ on the pronunciation of

Studies show that having a
late-afternoon snack of 100-200 calories high in
protein can not only help you stave off the
pre-dinner hungries, it also can save you as many
as 400 calories at suppertime. You arent as
likely to be overhungry, so you can pay attention
to when your body tells you to stop eating.
