Storyline

Kay Williams, an executive with Styles, Inc., is true to her absent husband Bill despite much harassment for dates from co-workers. But when Bill finally returns from Europe, it becomes increasingly evident to Kay that he has been a world- class philanderer. Still loving him, Kay decides to take gentle revenge by making him think she does likewise. Ensuing comic events ridicule the double standard at every opportunity.

Starring Lucille Ball And A Beautiful Wardrobe
24 April 2000 | by (Little Rock, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

This little romantic comedy doesn't break any new ground with a plot that has been done a dozen times before. However, when you get past that it is a very watchable film mainly due to pretty Lucille Ball. This vehicle features a very sophisticated character for Lucy to play, and she handles the task flawlessly.

Lucy's wardrobe for this film is 40's high fashion at it's best and that combined with some very glamorous hairstyles make for a rare glimpse of Lucille Ball the Glamour Queen.

If you can find it give it a look, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
