Babies, some of them naked, on a lawn, are shown as if they were the cast and crew. For example, as the camera crew's names are shown, the babies are seen trying to work a camera; the "editor" is a baby tugging on a film strip, and so on. See more »
Enjoyable cast and often deliciously witty dialogue succeed enlivening this otherwise rather static comedy. It can't shake off its staginess, which results in occasional moments of slight weariness, but for the most part, "The Grass Is Greener" is classy and quite entertaining. There are some splendid scenes between the four leading actors that make you smile. Really big laughs aren't guaranteed, but the film leaves an overall good feeling.
