Despite Mike's want for them to live in a flat in the heart of London, Janet, who is not a big city girl, ignores his want and instead finds them a house to rent thirty miles outside of London in Kent, which means that Mike has to commute into town by train. This commute is not ideal for Mike, who often for convenience stays in one of the company's flats in town rather than go home. This commuting situation makes Janet feel even more neglected than she already did previously. Janet believes Mike may be taking his neglect to the next level by having an affair with his secretary quickly turned assistant, Claire Hackett. Janet's beliefs are fueled in part by the Harper's busybody landlady, Vanessa Courtwright, who thinks Janet can play Mike's game by entering into an affair of her own, whether it be real or made-up. It has the potential to be real with the ... Written by Huggo

One of Doris Days Best
12 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie off of American Movie Classics and its certainly one of her top movies. She is certainly not the virgin goddess we are used to seeing. It tells a truth about marriage in the early sixties before womens liberation. Rod Taylor is excellent as the no nonsense businessman who also knows how to charm but forgets that he has to balance his business life with his married life to the very charming and sexy Doris Day. She is as charming here as in the Glass Bottom Boat which has been released on DVD. This one has it all jealousy, sensuality, an excellent script and good casting. Doris Day needs to fend off the boredom that comes with being the lady of the house. She charms the men and she charms the children and she charms the animals. These Americans in London are the exact opposite of the ugly Americans. You will like this one if you can get your hands on it.
