Documentary film-maker Bob Saunders and his wife Carol attend a group therapy session that serves as the backdrop for the opening scenes of the film. Returning to their Los Angeles home, the newly "enlightened" couple chastise their closest friends, Ted and Alice, for not coming to grips with their true feelings. Bob insists that everyone "feel" rather than intellectualize their emotions, and Carol pronounces "that's beautiful" after anyone says anything even remotely personal. Ted and Alice humor their friends, but it is obvious that there is a good-natured sexual tension at work within the foursome. Written by
In the psychiatrist scene, Alice is sitting directly across from the shrink. But in her close-ups, her chin is raised and she is obviously talking "up" to the camera. See more »
When we come right up to the sex, you become embarrassed.
What am I... What would you like... What am I supposed to think?
I have no wants. Say what you think you'd like to say.
Do you think I need this? Do you really think you can help me?
I think it'd be useful to talk some more. I don't know for sure if I can help you or not. Do you think you can help yourself?
Ted is a very nervous man! Now sex is very important to a man! You know that!
Well, it seems that our time is up for today.

keeping in mind how long this movie has survived and to find that its continuing popularity seemingly intact. it was (and remains) a brisk paced "fun, and funny" movie that still holds up in this somewhat jaded time we now live in - most viewers today would not have a clue how racy this movie was thought to be at its first showing way back in 1969. I can still remember my wife and I discussing the movie for weeks after first viewing it - with a little bit of embarrassment but over-all just plain laughter!! In fact, sometimes at parties we would "do some of the lines" which were hysterical and generally referred to by our friends as raunchy. thinking back it really fun to elicit the red faces from our friends - still makes me chuckle even after all these years - thanks for the opportunity of sharing this information with those who haven't seen it - its worth much more than the price of admission.
