Auf eine Kontaktanzeige hin treffen sich der bisexuelle Bruce und die nervöse Prudence in einem französischen Restaurant. Als Bruce von seinem Freund Bob erzählt, verlässt Prudence aufgebracht das Lokal. Beide suchen ihre Therapeuten auf, die Tür an Tür praktizieren - und auch keinen Rat wissen. Weil Bruce unter Decknamen eine zweite Annonce aufgibt, kommt es zu einem weiteren Treffen zwischen den beiden im gleichen Lokal, das vorübergehend im Chaos endet, als Bob auftaucht und mit Platzpatronen um sich schießt. Bruce und Prudence gestehen sich ihre Liebe, Bob begnügt sich mit dem jungen Kellner und die anwesenden Therapeuten begnügen sich miteinander.

Neurotic New Yorker Bruce (Jeff Goldblum, The Fly, The Big Chill) is a manic bisexual who enjoys a good cry. Equally insecure Prudence (Julie Hagerty, Airplane!, Lost in America) is the uptight writer he meets through the personal ads. Bob (Christopher Guest, This is Spinal Tap) is Bruce's roommate and former lover who is insanely jealous of Prudence. Prudence is also sleeping with her lecherous therapist Stuart (Tom Conti, Reuben, Reuben, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence), while Bruce's therapist Charlotte (Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson, Women in Love, A Touch of Class, Hopscotch) may be crazier than any of her patients. Add an extremely overprotective mother (Geneviève Page, Grand Prix) and a very odd French restaurant, and you have a one-of-a-kind comedy about life, love and the happy endings that lay Beyond Therapy. Robert Altman, the legendary director of M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Long Goodbye and Nashville co-wrote and directed this dysfunctional romantic comedy based on a smash Broadway play by Christopher Durang.
