This long-delayed romantic comedy from director Peter Chelsom stars Warren Beatty as a wealthy New York architect, Porter Stoddard. The revelation that his best friend Griffin (Garry Shandling) is cheating on his wife Mona (Goldie Hawn) leads to a mid-life crisis of sorts for Porter, jeopardizing his marriage to Ellie (Diane Keaton). When Mona leaves Griffin for her family's antebellum home in Mississippi, Porter accompanies her to lend his professional assistance in designing some home improvements and ends up entangled in a romantic assignation with his best friend's estranged wife. He then embarks on a series of other illicit, comical affairs. Among Porter's conquests are a cellist, Alex (Nastassja Kinski), the beautiful Eugenie (Andie MacDowell), and a Halloween reveler named Auburn (Jenna Elfman). He also runs afoul of Eugenie's overprotective father (Charlton Heston), who's armed with a shotgun and disturbingly unable to view his daughter as an adult. Town & Country (2001) is based on a script co-written by Buck Henry. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
Lot of big names, but the subject matter was poor. If you like cheating on your spouse, and homosexual themes, this movie is for you. They made fun of cheating and in turn the spouse would cheat to get back at the other. I wasn't amused by this movie at all.
We rented this movie because we have been watching Charlton Heston movies. He is in there somewhere. But this was so trashy we turned it off before we got to see his character.
The movie is about married couples cheating on each other, going to bed with their friend's spouse, complete with the unwanted details. Don't bother renting it.
