The plot to "Borrowed Wives" is pretty bad--and 100% ridiculous! Peter Foley owes money but cannot pay it off until he marries. This is because he is receiving a stipend from his Uncle Henry and it will only be increased when he gets married. He plans on marrying his sweetheart but when her train is delayed, Mr. Parker INSISTS he be paid off NOW or go to jail. And, Parker suggest they use his secretary to pose as Foley's wife in order to make the uncle happy and release the inheritance. This is an amazingly contrived plot--but it gets worse. It seems that Henry and his wife live in a spooky old haunted house!!!! AND, then the woman who Peter planned on marrying arrives at the house with another man!! What?!?!?!?!?! Does any of this make any sense and is there any part of this plot that doesn't sound stupid? If you answered no to both these questions, then I can pretty much say the movie is not worth your time. If, somehow this sound like a good film, then by all means try it--just don't invite me over to watch this turkey!
