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. Written by

Lucille Ball (Kay) gets mixed up in a comedy of misunderstandings with husband George Brent (Bill). The trouble is that there is absolutely no comedy.
Unfortunately this film has no zip. It is devoid of any humour and has annoying slapstick sequences that drag on and on. One example occurs towards the end of the film with Ball and Brent walking about in the same apartment but both unaware that the other is in the same apartment. That sequence really drags.
It also doesn't help that the characters aren't very bright. Ball is stupid to accept her husband's philandering with other women and Brent is just completely unlikeable. In fact, all the men are written as complete idiots and the script is transparent and obvious. The forced characterizations are insulting to the audience, eg, giving the male characters a jealous streak that just renders them unpleasant, and the women are all-knowing and all-forgiving. What a load of junk.
You'll do well if you stay awake with this film. It's rubbish.
