You know what your problem is, it's that you haven't seen enough movies. All of life's riddles are answered in the movies.
I was working as an usher in a movie theatre when Kramer vs. Kramer came out. I must have watched it (or portions of it) more than 20 times. I always enjoyed it.
I have watched it before too and it is a testament to 2 great actors, Hoffman and Streep, that it is still so watch-able!
