Details Limited Release: Apr 20, 2012; Rated: PG-13; Length: 103 Minutes; Genre: Drama; With: Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline; Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics

Diane Keaton, with her trademark nervous giggle-fit overacting, plays Beth, who deeply resents her surgeon husband. The strange thing is, his only crime appears to be his puckish sense of vanity, which Kevin Kline, the actor playing him, makes eminently likable. Beth adopts a broken-down mutt she names Freeway, and on their vacation, the dog gets lost in the Rockies. Will Beth, combing the mountains, find her new best friend and substitute hubby? Lawrence Kasdan's comedy strikes a note of rib-nudging blah coyness that feels very 1987. C
