(ABC, 10/20/1978, 120 mins). A romantic comedy, loosely based on the early courtship of Rob Reiner and his wife, Penny Marshall. It’s about a young couple who can’t make up their minds whether they just want to be bosom buddies or uncommitted lovers, and their embattled relationship between 1958 and 1971 when her show business aspirations take her to Hollywood and his struggles to be a novelist keep him in the Bronx.
