Storyline

A woman raises her son Ted to be a good loser, in effect creating a weakling who never asserts himself. Even after marrying his childhood sweetheart Barbara and assuming family obligations, Ted cannot bring himself to fight for respect. The worm finally turns when Barbara starts stepping out on her Milquetoast husband, who then turns out not to be so passive after all. All comes full circle in this slyly symmetrical romantic comedy, with the final scene neatly skewering the complications set up in the opening reel. Written by Dan Navarro <daneldorado@yahoo.com>

This one misses the mark.
1 August 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

While this movie's intentions might have been good, the execution of it is where it fails, primarily because of some thankfully outdated notions.

It's a shame, too, that 'Lane, Priscilla' (qv)'s performance gets a bit overshadowed by the content of the film. She is an absolute delight and her performance during the end sequence is both hilarious and beautiful at the same time.

This just goes to prove something that I've learned recently while watching movies from the 1930s and 40s: Priscilla Lane makes any movie that much better.
