Plot Synopsis

The movie is a frank portrayal of intertwining sexual relationships between three upper-class couples in an unnamed city. Much of the film's plot involves various characters expressing sexual dissatisfaction and entering into affairs with each other, including a homosexual liaison. The characters are never named until the end credits, where they are given rhyming names such as "Mary", "Jerry" and "Teri".

The film is a loosely based reflection of the restoration play The Country Wife by playwright William Wycherley. In this movie, the character Jerry (Ben Stiller) is seen directing a scene from this play with his students.



Jason Patric's performance as the misogynistic doctor Cary earned an award for Best Supporting Actor from the Las Vegas Film Critics Society Awards.

Patric also received a Best Supporting Actor - Drama nomination from the International Press Academy (Satellite Awards).
