The Story of Us
The Story of Us ★★ ½ 1999 (R)
Hey attraction is easy but sustaining a relationship is hard—particularly after 15 years in a marriage of opposites. Crossword puzzle editor Katie (Pfeiffer) is a planner and organizer while hubby Ben (Willis), a TV comedy writer, is a spontaneous free-spirit. The kids are away at summer camp when the constantly bickering duo decide on a trial separation as they wonder what went wrong. Appealing leads but story is repetitive and sentimental. 98m/C VHS, DVD .
