Life is good for April until she come back and catch Evan with another woman in their bed. After seeing this she leaves without a word and came back to her husband... The end.

Of course the film is quite predictable, but it was enjoyable. This is the perfect example of a couple movie and it feels more like a romantic drama with a little bit of sex. Seriously there is only one scene in the first hour and it's at the beginning, so I bet some people could dislike this if they expect the usual formula.

The acting is fine and we feel the love between the couple, in fact there are quite a difference in the scenes between Pete with his wife and Pete with the other girl (the same is true for the Evan's scenes).

The film lost some steams before the final act when April O'Neil disappeared from the screen and this is the only negative I can find.

Not for everybody, but a good discovery... it was nice to see that real couple movies are always made and from what I have read this is Sweet Sinner specialty.
