Bye Bye Love is a 1995 American comedy-drama film that tells the story of three divorced fathers and their relationships with their children, ex-wives, and girlfriends. The film, directed by Sam Weisman and written by Gary David Goldberg and Brad Hall, stars Matthew Modine, Randy Quaid, and Paul Reiser in lead roles. Dave (Matthew Modine), Vic (Randy Quaid), and Donny (Paul Reiser) are three friends who have recently gone through divorces. They are all now trying to deal with the complexities and challenges of co-parenting their children with their ex-wives while also attempting to move on with their own lives.

The film follows each of the three fathers as they try to navigate their new reality. Dave, a successful lawyer, is struggling to cope with the fact that his wife has remarried and is now expecting another child. He throws himself into work and starts dating a much younger woman, who turns out to be more interested in his money than in him.

Vic, a truck driver, is dealing with his ex-wife's decision to move their children to another state. He becomes increasingly frustrated with the distance and eventually takes matters into his own hands, kidnapping the children and taking them on a road trip. Along the way, he learns some valuable lessons about fatherhood and responsibility.

Meanwhile, Donny, a comedian, is struggling to find true love again. Though he enjoys spending time with his children, he is desperate for a new relationship and is constantly on the lookout for someone to fill the void left by his ex-wife.

As the three fathers navigate these challenges, they also receive support from each other and from other divorced parents. They attend a support group for divorced dads, where they share their experiences and provide each other with valuable advice and support.

The film also explores the perspectives of the children, as they struggle to adapt to their new living arrangements and try to understand their parents' decisions. Some of the most touching moments in the film come from the interactions between the fathers and their children, as they try to rebuild their relationships and make new memories together.

Overall, Bye Bye Love is a heartwarming and often humorous look at the challenges of divorce and co-parenting. It offers a realistic portrayal of the difficulties faced by divorced parents, while also emphasizing the importance of love, friendship, and family.
