Ed convinces his best friend Paul that he should fool around with other women in order to preserve his happy marriage. Ed illustrates his point with a series of vignettes acted out by a lot of famous celebrities. The joke of it all is that Paul is married to lovely Ruth! Written by
Each celebrity who did a cameo was paid $10,000 for two days work (including The Turtles who sang the title song). If anyone was required to work for more than two days, they were to receive an extra $10,000. No one went overtime. See more »
This is a very entertaining artifact of its era, the swinging sixties.Concerning the attempts of Walter Matthau to cheat on his sexy wife Inger Stevens with the even more sexy and luscious Sue Ann Langdon (what did this guy want, everything?)cheered on by his rake of a pal, Robert Morse(!!). A case of stunt casting which in this case works. The sexual revolution hits poor suburbanite Matthau right in the face and he wants in on it. Who can blame him? This would-be bawdy comedy was directed by nice guy Gene Kelly, so if it's not rapacious enough for some, it's still the best piece of bawd this side of Billy Wilder.
