The Last Married Couple in America is a 1980 comedy film released in the US.[2]

It was directed by Gilbert Cates, whose most successful film Oh, God! Book II, was released in the same year. The film starred George Segal and Natalie Wood as a California couple struggling to maintain their "happily married" status as all their friends begin to get divorces and seem to be caught up in the decadence of the sexual revolution and the "ME" era. This is the last completed theatrical release Natalie Wood made before her death in 1981.

Music[edit]

The theme song to this movie is "We Could Have It All," sung by Maureen McGovern. The song became a hit on the adult contemporary charts of Canada (#6)[3] and the U.S. (#16). It was written by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel.
