Storyline

Larry and Olivia Pearce have been married less than a year and Olivia is anxious to return to her old job at her father's music store, but macho-Larry believes that a woman's place in in the home. As the store executive he plans to hire a beautiful, former WAC officer, whom he met in the Army, as the sales manager but Olivia tricks him into giving her the job. When she sees him in the company of the former-WAC, Olivia thinks the worst and files for a divorce. It takes an elevator breakdown to bring about a reconciliation.

A Limp Attempt At Romantic Screwball
10 June 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

The title seems slapped on. It doesn't have much to do with the frenetic acting and tired plot. Who's having the fling? Entrepreneur Zachary Scott or his wife, Alexis Smith, who wants to go back to work? Probably it refers to Scott, who has made overtures toward hiring a female military buddy for the job Smith wangles.

Smith is always a likable performer but has little to do here. And Scott, excellent as a villain or as an oily ladies' man in other movies, is just awful here. He may have had a flair for comedy but if so, he was very ill served by this director. He comes across as whiny and weak.

The plot is passable. It's painless. But it aims for screwball and falls far, far short.
