Storyline

A couple's marriage is going stale. She wants a take-charge kind of guy, someone who'll show her who the boss is. He's not that type, and in fact believes that women don't really respect men who are. When they meet a macho professional bicyclist and his girlfriend, the wife becomes attracted to the muscular, if not particularly bright, athlete and the husband finds himself drawn to his girlfriend.

Raymond Griffith steals the show.
15 April 1999 | by (Plano, Texas) – See all my reviews

The plot of this farce concerns Adolphe Menjou and Viola Dana's boring marriage. She wants a man who is rough with her and orders her around. He feels a woman will not respect a man who treats her badly. She becomes infatuated with a muscular bicycle contestant, while Menjou is attracted to the bicyclist's girlfriend (Jetta Goudal).

While the plot is nothing new, this film is highlighted by the supporting performance of Raymond Griffith as Igor. Igor is supposedly the "next" Rudolph Valentino, although he shows no sex appeal at all because he is drunk the entire movie. Although Griffith only has a few minutes of screen time, his scenes are genuinely funny and they make this film worth watching.
