Let’s just say it’s a film of its time.
Making Love was made in the early ’80s — disco wasn’t completely dead yet, and the home video wars were still fought between VHS and Betamax.
So the swell of strings at the start of the film, and the "aw, shucks" dialogue during the exposition are par for the proverbial course.
Michael Ontkean and Kate Jackson play Zack and Claire, a married couple with their careers on the rise. He’s a doctor, and she’s a TV executive. They have no children because they’re waiting to get established in their jobs.
Or so they tell themselves.
