Actor Jason Steele plays a caring, godlike doctor on television. Off the set, he's the insecure fiancee of Melissa, a pretty art teacher. Jason doesn't know what to expect of marriage, especially after seeing how the fires have burned out in all of poker buddies' marriages. Complicating matters is that his friends' wives have confused Jason with his television persona and they keep popping up at his house ready to see what his bedside manner is like. Written by

Funny asides nearly make up for fatigued bedroom-frustration plot...
Dean Martin, as a TV doctor along the lines of the then-popular "Ben Casey", is besieged by the unhappy wives of his poker pals; they all want the doctor's advice for curing the marital blahs, which causes Dino to reexamine his relationship with steady girlfriend Elizabeth Montgomery. Plastic bedroom farce which showcases some curvy, classy ladies but doesn't give Martin anything to do but react. He's on auto-pilot anyway, only lively when trying to skirt around dance-crazy Jill St. John. The supporting players upstage the leads, with Carol Burnett a stitch as Montgomery's wiseacre gal-pal, Martin Balsam lively as a head-shrinker, and droll Johnny Silver playing Martin's seen-it-all houseboy (who makes frequent trips to the liquor store). Not much happens here to justify the 103-minute running time, although director Daniel Mann does manage some funny bits of satire and frantic comedy, including Burnett's striptease in a Tijuana bar. ** from ****
