A pair of women in Reno to get quickie divorces decide to spend a raucous night on the town, proving that the end of a marriage (or two) doesn't need to be a complete downer. A screwball romp.
Description by Image Entertainment:
In this delightfully witty, romantic gem, young idealistic believer Edie (Jennifer Tilly) and devastated Pen ("Grease's" Stockard Channing) meet in Reno, where both intend to get "quickie" divorces. The unlikely friends share a wild night of drunken adventure and soul searching with a local cowboy ("The Silence of the Lambs'" Scott Glenn) just dumped by his wife, encountering a quirky mix of characters along the way. Both funny and insightful, "Edie and Pen" dives into the gap between what men and women want... and what they end up with! Music by Shawn Colvin.
Jennifer Tilly and Stockard Channing star in this romantic comedy that takes a look at the lighter side of divorce.
A pair of newly single women, Edie and Penelope, frequent the taverns in Reno -- where they came to get a quick legal split -- and strike up a conversation. Later, they meet Harry, who's drowning his sorrows because his wife has just left him (and has taken the dog to boot). As these emotionally bruised romantics slug more sauce, they confess past deeds and tell half-truths about themselves.
Little do they know, this is one night they'll never forget.
