This is a
romantic comedy about a middle-aged couple who have been married for many
years and although they love each other deeply, the romance has faded to
the point where an evening’s entertainment involves channel surfing, at
least for Ralph. Jan in desperation makes one last plea for her now
overweight and out of shape husband to pay more attention to her and
change his couch potato ways.
Although he appears not to get the message right away, eventually Ralph
realizes that in order to save his marriage he is going to have to make
some major changes and thus joins the gym and enrolls them both in
ballroom dance classes. Although grueling, the next 10 weeks sees a real
transformation in both the look and grace of Ralph and it appears that all
is well until, in one brave act of chivalry, an accident puts him in a
coma fighting for his life.
Jan laments the fact that she ever pushed him into this situation and at
the moment when things look the worst and she may discontinue life
support, he recovers and the two are reunited once again on the couch in
front of the TV; and Jan couldn’t be happier.
