Storyline

Eileen is 22 and is smarting from her breakup with Russ. She comes to New York to visit her brother, Adam, who is an airline pilot. Eileen confides to her brother that she thinks she may be the only 22 year old virgin left in the world. Adam assures her that sex is not what all men look for and insists he hasn't slept around. Of course, Adam is lying and is in hot pursuit of a tryst with his occasional girlfriend Mona. However, Adam's date with Mona has a series of job related interruptions. Meanwhile, Eileen decides to see if she can have some fun for herself in New York, and seems to find the perfect candidate in Mike, a man she meets on the bus. But things get complicated when Russ pops in with a proposal and a mistaken assumption. Written by Wendy Scheinberg

Breezy Norman Krasna comedy of mistaken identity...
27 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

When it came to sex comedies involving mistaken identities, Norman Krasna was the master. This breezy comedy is based on one of his more modestly successful plays but it's been transferred to the screen with a generous glimpse of New York City backgrounds and de luxe apartment interiors, all in gorgeous Technicolor.

Furthermore, it has 22 year-old JANE FONDA in one of her early charming roles (before she took up politics), and two attractive male co-stars in CLIFF ROBERTSON (as her brother, an airline pilot) and ROD TAYLOR, as the man she happens to meet on a Fifth Avenue bus.

Jane's problem is that she lost her chance for marriage because she turned down sex beforehand and comes to New York from Albany to ask her brother for his advice on the subject. She isn't in the big city long before she meets ROD TAYLOR and that's when the plot goes into full swing. When her real boyfriend shows up unexpectedly at her apartment, she passes off Taylor as her brother. Naturally, this is Krasna's set-up for the rest of the story.

It's all completely innocuous but offers passable entertainment for a rainy day. Fonda is cheerfully ditzy most of the time and Taylor plays his role with his usual masculine charm. Robertson makes the most of his role as her playboy brother.

Enjoyable fluff, a bit dated, but fun.
