Sparkling and funny romantic comedy about a wife who has written an article for insurance companies on "steps to preserve a marriage" - her idea is for the married couple to remain celibate for the first three months of marriage thus giving them a tighter bond or something, before starting on a family. By coincidence she is about to be married herself, so decides to try out this radical concept on her new husband, much to his chagrin. Hubby agrees thinking she will "change her mind", then spends all his time trying to seduce his wife into bed by using such tricks as champagne (Wife: "I can drink glasses and glasses of champagne and never feel a thing" - oops there goes one of his schemes), mood music, etc.
This film is highly amusing, great light entertainment. Rosalind Russell and Melvyn Douglas are so good in this, portraying the newly married couple. By the way, Rosalind gets to wear lots of gorgeous dresses and jewelry in this film - oh what pins! There is a very funny dinner party scene where, for business reasons Melvyn Douglas and his business partners have misled a party guest and his wife, a couple with many children of their own, to believe that Rosalind's character is pregnant. Thus follows all kinds of comedy in pursuit of keeping this couple from spilling the beans to her that they believe she is going to have a baby - and, of course, she is constantly jumping around and lifting heavy chairs and the like. Lots of fun.
