TOO MUCH TO ASK by Fern Rives


Email this review


Skittish to slight comedy in which a sensible Jane, imposed on by the artistic and amorous temperaments of her mother, Connie, and her sister, Sandra, takes a firm stand against both. Sandra, leaving her husband Neal to indulge an inclination for smoother, married Mark, finds this plan spiked by Jane. Connie, toying with the idea of marriage to an actor is faced with the impasse of his wife. Jane's tendency is to think of others first, but is ultimately forced to consider her own prospects as Willie, young musician, decides marriage and music won't mix until Jane decides she'll take both rather than none... Not too much point to this, but it will provide a lighter moment or two of rental diversion.
