The friends and in-laws talk to them and to each other and to anyone who will listen about it. Written by

This featherweight romantic comedy pairs Loretta Young with her frequent leading man David Niven as a couple celebrating their 10th anniversary who realize underneath all the sugar talk they've grown indifferent to each other. Not helping things are their parents, who have always not quite approved of their child's choice of spouse. A spat leads to divorce proceedings and Loretta's old flame Eddie Albert suddenly emerges while longtime "friend" Virginia Field sees her chance now with Niven. There's nothing really funny going on despite Charlie Ruggles and ZaSu Pitts in the supporting cast in quite trivial roles. Loretta looks gorgeous of course, especially in some classic Edith Head fashions and the film casts her as a career woman but the movie while quite watchable is just not very interesting. Child actress Nina Griffith is pleasant as Young and Niven's daughter caught in the middle of their war; according to IMDb, this is her only film.
