Angles of the love triangle: Jake (Alec Baldwin) and Jane (Meryl Streep) were married, but that was a long time ago. They've been divorced for 10 years and their kids are leaving the nest. When the former couple reconnects at their son's college graduation they begin a hot love affair, even though Jake is trying to start a family with his much younger new wife.
Final equation: Jane likes being the "other woman," but she's also looking for a real relationship. That's where Adam (Steve Martin) enters the picture, a successful and sensitive architect who is redesigning her kitchen. Of course, Jake's marriage falls apart and Adam finds out about the affair. Jake and Jane end the relationship, leaving Jane free to pursue a life with Adam.
