This movie really snuck up on me, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much.

Entertaining tale of adultery among married relatives and really about true love appearing in the least likely of places.

" Stunning Celtic beauty Sean Young is always intriguing & with a vulnerability surprising in such breathtaking eye candy.

I found it entertaining and it left me with a warm, fuzzy feeling.

Unfairly dismissed by some as confusing, this kind of sentimental character piece needs a tight focus so all of the nuances of the characters shine through.

It's uneven, but enjoyable.

Enjoyable Actors, OK Late '80s US Version of French Film .

This North American rewrite takes itself less seriously and is, to me at least, much more entertaining.

Here Rossellini reminds me of similarly radiant Irish actress Ellen Burstyn in parallel film "Same Time Next Year" with equally genuine co-star Alan Alda conveying sincerity like Ted Danson enjoyable here in a non-stereotyped role like "Cheers," more like his later "Becker.

Still, COUSINS is an enjoyable romance.

I found it overall entertaining and left me with a nice warm feeling (and a runny nose).
