In the spirit of the classic 'My Favorite Wife', but with a mid-twentieth-century spin, airline pilot Jim Carver marries Jessica when he thinks that first wife Ann has died. Movie-of-the-Week hilarity ensues when Ann shows up alive and Jim tries to balance both marriages and households, one with Ann in LA and the other with Jessica in San Francisco. How fortunate that his airline job takes him back and forth between the two cities on a routine basis! Written by Stuart Manewith

pure joy
6 June 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

nice, seductive, a great Larry Hagman, a comedy who use old fashion recipes for a story who is only simple and amusing. it is far to impress but it could be victim of admiration for the cast, architecture of confusion, compassion for the poor pilot and good occasion to remember Larry Hagman's art out of Dallas circle. a film about love, sensitivity, error and sin as result of innocence. all in smart manner. all precise at all. a film about drama of a honest man . not original but amusing, it is only a good easy comedy. and that status is the key for transforms it in pure joy. so, see it. for relaxation. and for few doses of useful humor.
