Picks and Pans Review: Bedrooms

HBO (Feb. 17, 20, 29, 8 p.m. ET)

Joseph Bologna and wife Renee Taylor write, direct, introduce and star in four cute (if slightly off-color) skits on love. There are the usual modern romantic themes: a divorce, a kinky ménage à trois, a skittish father of the bride. But there is also a clever send-up of an est-like marriage workshop (pay $600 and learn to say, "So what?"). And there is a fine cast of where-are-they-nows: Louise (Mary Hartman) Lasser, Jane (Saturday Night Live) Curtin and Charles (The Lonely Guy) Grodin, plus Bologna's co-star in Blame It on Rio, Demi Moore. The laugh-track is a bit too rambunctious for the material; a chortle-track would have done nicely.
