Micki + Maude is a 1984 comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and starring Dudley Moore. It co-stars Tony-award winning actress and dancer Ann Reinking as Micki and Amy Irving as Maude.

With the exception of appearances as herself, as in the documentary Mad Hot Ballroom in 2005, this was Reinking's last film role.

The film co-stars Wallace Shawn and includes two small scenes with wrestler André the Giant, where he is introduced as his own name. However, unlike their later roles in The Princess Bride, the two do not have any scenes together.

Plot

Rob Salinger (Dudley Moore) is an overworked television reporter. He is happily married to Micki (Ann Reinking), a lawyer who is a candidate to become a judge, but she has been unable to bear a child and Rob wants one badly. On an assignment, Rob interviews a young musician named Maude Guillory (Amy Irving) and is smitten with her. They begin seeing one another and, when she becomes pregnant, Maude and her professional wrestler father begin to plan her wedding.

Prepared to face the music, confess to Micki and agree to a divorce, Rob is stunned when she reveals that she, too, is going to give birth. Rob becomes a bigamist. With his television boss Leo (Richard Mulligan) covering for him, he sees one wife during the daytime and the other at night, using work as an excuse. He gets away with it until the fates collide, Micki and Maude going into labor at the same hospital on the same floor at the same time.

The two women end up becoming friends, but they ban Rob from their lives as well as the lives of his new children after realizes they were tricked and cheated by him. Rob follows them around, spying on both families from a distance. Eventually Rob reconciles with both Micki and Maude, though it is not clear if the two women are aware he has reconciled with the other. The film ends with both women pursuing their careers, Micki is now a judge and Maude is a lead cellist in a symphony. The film closes with a shot of Rob in a park years later, with two babies and his six other children he has had over the years with Micki and Maude.
