Scenes From a Mall (1991)

Woody Allen takes a break from directing to star with Better Midler in Paul Mazursky’s comedy about a well-off couple spending their 16th anniversary at a mall. Their special day becomes rocky when mutual revelations of infidelity surface. Considering the talent involved in this film, it’s hugely disappointing.

There’s a few laughs to be found, but it’s mostly a slight, tedious effort. Rated R.
