Review - Story of Us, The

Ben and Katie have been married for 15 years, but they can't stop arguing. When their two kids go off to summer camp, they decide to separate. Ben still wants to get back together, but Katie begins flirting with a divorced man. Still, there's a lot of love and in the end, on the day they pick up their kids, they decide to stay together — "because everyone has habits that are annoying, and I might as well be annoyed by yours." Katie's speech at the end is a great statement about marriage and how things are never perfect, but married people share a history and a love that should never be thrown away.

But on the other hand, there's a tremendous amount of foul language and crude homor by peripheral characters that adds nothing to the movie and give it its R rating.
