Maggie (Bisset), a professor of English literature, is fast approaching her silver wedding anniversary. But her world is shattered upon discovering that her husband, Tom, has been repeatedly adulterous during their marriage and now intends to marry his younger mistress. Facing divorce, she retreats to the tranquility of her hometown, where she met her first love, Patrick, decades earlier. Patrick has long since died, and the club where they danced together—the Harvest Moon—is closed and in disrepair. She seizes upon the idea of buying and restoring the club again—with the help of a young carpenter/woodworker, John (Mabius), who turns out to be Patrick's son. Soon the attraction between John and Maggie is hard to deny. However, Maggie can't stop thinking of the obstacles between them, including his young age, his current girlfriend and, most critically, whether her feelings for John are sincere or only a projection of her long-ago love for his father. All is finally revealed once the Harvest Moon is open again.

Max Devlin (Elliott Gould) is a shady landlord of a rundown tenement in Los Angeles who is rather jaded and callous towards his fellow man. One day while chasing an errant tenant, he is run over by a bus and killed. He descends into hell (which resembles a corporate business) and meets the Devil's chief henchman Barney Satin (read: Satan) (Bill Cosby). He is told of his life of sin and the fact that he is doomed to spend eternity at a section called Level 4. However, he is given a chance to save himself by convincing three other people to sell their souls in exchange for his. Max returns to Earth and begins his frantic quest with two months (ending on May 15) to complete his mission. Barney appears frequently throughout the movie to check up on Max's progress as well as both taunt and persuade him to carry out the plans. A running joke is that nobody, except Max, can see or hear Barney.

Ancien étudiant libéral des années 1960 devenu détective privé de Chicago, le solitaire Moses Wine reçoit, un jour, la visite d'une ancienne petite amie de lycée, Lila Shea. Celle-ci lui demande d'enquêter sur la disparition du candidat pour qui elle travaille, un certain Miles Hawthorne, qui postule pour devenir le nouveau gouverneur de la Californie. Un flyer circule dans l’État le montrant associé, dans les années 1960, avec son opposant radical Howard Eppis. Une photo qui peut discréditer Hawthorne et le faire perdre aux élections. Sans s'en rendre compte, Wine est sur le point d'être impliqué dans une affaire d’État dangereuse où sont impliqués des politiciens véreux et qui pourrait déclencher des attentats dans les rues de Los Angeles.
