A quarter-century also has exposed how wispy the story is. Paula Heaton finds herself dumped by her actor boyfriend almost before the opening credits finish, forcing her to share the apartment with another actor, Elliot Daniels , who has sublet it. Director Richard Benjamin who also has a small cameo as a big-shot director generally tones down the actors while playing up the warmth and fuzziness, as the central couple spar their way into a somewhat improbable romance. And while Simon calls the movie one of his finest creations, Paula ranks among his most thinly drawn characters, leaving Heaton to struggle with the same traits that hampered Marsha Mason.
