I Will, I Will... For Now is a romantic comedy from 1976 which starred the notable actors Elliott Gould, Diane Keaton, and Paul Sorvino. The movie follows the storyline of a married couple, Cy (played by Elliott Gould) and Erica (played by Diane Keaton) who are going through a mid-life crisis in their relationship. The couple had been married for six years and both were feeling restless in their marriage. Cy, a successful lawyer, was getting tired of his mundane life and wanted to explore some excitement outside the marriage. On the other hand, Erica, a part-time model and a freelance writer, was feeling unfulfilled in her career and wanted to focus on being a writer.

The couple decides to separate and try living independently for a while. To make things official, they get an attorney to help them scale through the tedious divorce procedures. In the process of getting the divorce, the couple met other characters, including a wealthy entrepreneur, Norman (played by Paul Sorvino) who showed interest in Erica.

The movie showcases the lives of Cy and Erica separately as they tried to discover themselves without the other. Cy starts to date other women, including his beautiful and much younger secretary - Rhonda (played by Victoria Principal). However, his quest for the excitement outside the marriage results in a disaster as he constantly endangers himself and his lover. Meanwhile, Erica meets Norman and they begin to date. Norman falls in love with Erica, but Erica is not sure of her feelings yet.

The film makes the audience realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side as both Cy and Erica realize that life without each other is not easy. Cy feels guilty about following his desires and comes crawling back to Erica, but Erica is still undecided about what she wants. Erica is aware of her love for Cy, but she is confused by Norman's persistence and his luxurious lifestyle. The couple goes back and forth with their feelings, and the audience sees the process they undergo as they try to understand the essence of their marriage.

I Will, I Will... For Now is an engaging movie that examines the dynamics of marriage and relationships in the wake of the sexual revolution of the 1970s. The movie highlights some of the essential elements of divorces - legal documents, property settlements, and of course, the emotional wreckage that comes with it. The film also portrays the sexual freedom and experimentation of the 70s and how it affects marriage and relationships.

The acting from the lead actors, especially Diane Keaton and Elliott Gould, makes the movie an exciting watch. They both brought life to the complicated characters they played, and their chemistry on screen is remarkable. Paul Sorvino also delivered an impressive performance as the wealthy and persistent Norman who falls in love with Erica.

The movie's soundtrack features several classic 70s songs, and the fashion in the movie also reminds the audience of the fashion sensibilities of the 70s. The scenery and sets are beautifully captured and complement the movie's plot.

In concluding, I Will, I Will... For Now is a relatable movie that examines the essence of marriage and relationships. The film's plot may be predictable, but it is an engaging and entertaining lovely story filled with relatable experiences of couples battling with doubts, jealousy, and insecurity.
