The movie tells the story of a psychiatrist, Dr. Saul Benjamin (Dudley Moore), who falls in love with one of his patients, Chloe Allen (Elizabeth McGovern). Dr. Benjamin is a successful psychiatrist who has everything in life except for love. During one of his sessions, he meets Chloe, a beautiful and charming woman with a troubled past. As he continues to see her as a patient, he realizes that he is falling in love with her.

Meanwhile, Dr. Benjamin's best friend, Larry Geller (Alec Guinness), is also a psychiatrist who is going through his own marital problems. He is divorced from his wife and is unable to connect with his daughter.

As Dr. Benjamin tries to navigate his feelings for Chloe, he also has to deal with his patients, including a neurotic lawyer (Wallace Shawn) and a suicidal artist (Renée Taylor). He also has to contend with his overbearing mother (Nancy Walker), who is determined to find him a suitable wife.
