Description by OLDIES.com:
Walter (James Coburn) is a successful doctor, and so is his wife Evelyn (Shirley MacLaine). Wealthy and good - looking, they should be a happily married couple - but they're not. Walter is so caught up in his career that he fails to keep up with Evelyn. So when she falls for the charms of Greg (Stephen Collins), a real estate Romeo - it takes Walter by surprise. Even more so, because he finds out about it from Stephanie (Susan Sarandon), Greg's deserted TV weathergirl girlfriend. But the solution seems clear - fight fire with fire. In a simple swap maneuver, Greg moves in with Evelyn and Walter moves in with Stephanie! Sound like a swinging concept from the 70's? Well it is in LOVING COUPLES, a contemporary comedy classic of love lost and disco dancing.
Two couples find old values and the new morality in sharp conflict as they cavort about in a tag team love contest. Set against the plush and wealthy background of Beverly Hills.
When young stud Gregg crashes his car, he is taken to a hospital and treated by an attractive middle-aged physician named Evelyn. The two start an affair -- and they're not the only ones doing it, because Evelyn's husband soon has a fling with Gregg's live-in girlfriend, Stephanie. Then all four meet up at a resort where they end up swapping partners and apartments.
Will everything finally fall back into place' Or will this game of musical chairs continue'
