An affable, lumbering, semi-screwball domestic comedy that’s right at home in a ’90s living room. In That Old Feeling a long-divorced couple (Midler and Farina), who still seethe with mutual hate, meet at their daughter’s wedding, where their Burton-Tayloresque passions reignite in a torrid two-day affair that threatens everyone’s happiness. Midler, the Divine Ham, plays her campy-vampy self, and Farina is mushy like the cereal, but Danny Nucci (Crimson Tide) as a two-bit paparazzo summons (even post-Di) the charm this Preston Sturges wannabe directed by Carl Reiner needs.
