Married to It is a 1991 romantic comedy directed by Arthur Hiller and starring Beau Bridges, Stockard Channing, and Robert Sean Leonard. The movie follows the lives of three New York City couples: John and Iris Russo (Bridges and Channing), Chuck and Vivian Williamson (Leonard and Mary Stuart Masterson), and Leo and Nina Green (Ron Silver and Cybill Shepherd).

The couples are initially introduced as they attend a private school fundraiser. Although they come from vastly different backgrounds and lead vastly different lives, they are all there to support a common cause - their children's education. However, as the movie progresses, these seemingly different couples become more intertwined as they confront the challenges of married life.

John and Iris Russo are an older couple who have been married for 19 years. John is a successful architect who is currently going through a mid-life crisis, while Iris is a high-school English teacher who is emotionally drained from dealing with difficult students. Their marriage is put to the test when John has an affair with a younger woman and Iris discovers that one of her students is pregnant.

Chuck and Vivian Williamson are a newlywed couple who are struggling to balance their demanding careers with their newfound roles as parents. Chuck is an idealistic public-school teacher who is frustrated with his inability to make a difference in his students' lives, while Vivian is a talented and successful dancer who is hesitant to quit her job and stay home with their baby.

Leo and Nina Green are a wealthy couple who seem to have it all - the perfect marriage, successful careers, and a beautiful home. However, their perfect facade crumbles when Nina has an affair with one of her clients and Leo discovers that his business partner has been embezzling from their company.

As the three couples navigate the ups and downs of married life, they begin to rely on each other for support and advice. John seeks solace in Chuck's idealism and Vivian's understanding, while Iris confides in Nina's wisdom and Leo's business savvy. Chuck and Vivian learn from John and Iris's experiences, and Leo and Nina come to appreciate the stability and love that John and Iris have built over the years.

Married to It is a heartwarming and often comical exploration of the joys and challenges of marriage. It tackles topics such as infidelity, parenthood, and work-life balance with wit and sensitivity. The movie benefits from the strong performances of its all-star cast, particularly Bridges and Channing as the central couple. The chemistry between the three couples feels natural and genuine, making it easy to root for their individual and collective happiness.

Overall, Married to It is an enjoyable and relatable romantic comedy that will make you laugh, cry, and appreciate the importance of love and commitment in marriage.
