This movie is witty and funny. It also shows the changing morals in mainstream society during the 1960's. It's a good example of dry, witty British humor. If you enjoy "The Importance of being Earnest," you might enjoy this film, although the settings are in different centuries. It's very funny that the birth control pills keep getting switched for aspirin. Also, the surprise pregnancies of a woman with a teenage daughter and of the daughter, as well. It's also funny how a married couple is so estranged that they would prefer to marry others. I recommend this film. If you like British humor, you'll enjoy this film. David Niven and Deborah Kerr make funny adversaries, even though they are husband and wife.
