This is a free country isn't it? Why should a few million dollars keep me from having the same opportunities as anyone else?

Odd romantic comedy has a hard time making any sense...
BARBARA STANWYCK and HENRY FONDA give their all to this worthless little romantic comedy that gives the jealousy angle a workout, with millionaire Fonda becoming insanely jealous of his wife's contact with her male patients while he does virtually nothing for a living.
It's supposed to be hilarious but more often than not it hits a sour note. Fonda is not too likable as a magnificent dope and underplays his role with his usual combination of humility and straightforwardness. His role is so absurd you wish the writers had thought of a more realistic jealousy angle for most of the movie.
RUTH DONNELLY does nicely as a loyal friend, as does EDGAR BUCHANAN as the gardener who speaks words of wisdom. Too bad wisdom isn't more characteristic of the script.
Despite the floundering script, Stanwyck and Fonda make the whole thing look better than it actually is. They have good chemistry together and make the most of whatever humor there is.
A good word too for MELVILLE COOPER as the stuffy butler. But all of them are really wasting their time in this silly romantic comedy.
