Just across the street, Margot shares a faux-shabby house with her good-guy hubby Lou (Rogen), a cookbook author distracted by the looming deadline for his new tome devoted to ways of preparing chicken. Margot considers Lou's sister Geraldine (Silverman), a recovering alcoholic, one of her best friends, and she and her husband have an affectionate relationship.

But after five years of marriage, Lou and Margot share little emotional intimacy and even less sexual warmth. In the too-bright heat of summer, she becomes increasingly attracted to Daniel.

Despite a few indelible moments, “Take This Waltz” stumbles along to its obvious conclusion without ever realizing the potential of its cast, filmmaker or story.

Bonus features: Making-of featurette, red carpet interviews and trailer.
