Movie Review by ManMachine
October 1st, 2017

Ah! Yes! The "Swinging 60s"

Clearly a product of its time - This 90-minute, one-note-joke, "adult" comedy spent it first 89 minutes trying its damnedest to convince every married man in the audience to cheat on his wife.

And then "Zap!" in its very last minute it did a total u-turn and told the guys to forget about it and just be happy with the little, obedient wifey waiting faithfully at home.

In this movie (where all women were portrayed as being mincing, mini-skirted Barbie dolls whose only thought was to be a dutiful wife) - It was clearly suggested that it was, in fact, a man's obligation, as a man, to cheat on his spouse and not feel in the least bit guilty about it at all.

In many ways this film's story was just a more racy, up-dated remake of 1955's "The Seven Year Itch". The only thing that managed to hold this viewer's interest was the numerous celebrity cameos that continuously punctuated the story. This film's director was veteran, Hollywood actor, Gene Kelly.
