Movie Info

An Americanized remake of the popular French comedy Cousin, Cousine, this bittersweet comedy centers on the slow-brewing romance between a pair of cousins who are only related by marriage. They meet at a wedding and become instant friends. Unfortunately, other family members misconstrue their closeness and begin assuming the worst. When the cousins hear about this, they decide to fake an affair to teach the suspicious a lesson. Of course, the last laugh is on them when they cross the line and become real lovers.

Cousins is a celebration of carnal desire, wrapped up in a comedy so that nobody is too badly hurt.

Audience Reviews for Cousins

Hmmm..boinking cousins. Not really compelling. Ted Danson should have known better and Isabella Rossellini should be condemned for making it.
