When Caroline and her friends are talking in the cafe, and Cynthia says, "You're so lucky not to have a pre-nup," she has a champagne glass in her hand. We see her then finishing off her champagne, but she never puts it down. In the next shot, her glass is on the table, we see her hand take it off the table, she drinks from it again, then she puts it down. See more »

Lots of Fun
13 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie may not be Academy Award material, but I found it very entertaining. The performances by Kirstie Alley and Tim Allen are hilarious. There's also a "moral to the story." I've seen "For Richer or Poorer" several times and highly recommend it.
