Starting Over (1979)
A divorced man falls in love, but somehow he can’t get over his ex-wife. This effects his love life in comic ways. Based on Dan Wakefield’s novel. Burt Reynolds is an attractive middle-aged man who suffers a crisis of confidence when ditched by his ambitious singer wife (Candice Bergen), until he begins to forge a new new relationship with an equally insecure teacher (Jill Clayburgh). But when the wife attempts a reconciliation – seduction followed by a truly excruciating song she has composed for him – he realizes where his loyalty lies.
