"Graduate"-styled irreverence with an overlay of sex, marriage, identity, and analysis...
15 November 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Deadpan-comic character study from the novel by Charles Webb involving a dissatisfied working stiff (with a predilection for peeping) whose benumbed wife walks out on him while on their vacation; she moves in with her sister and masculinely-neutered brother-in-law, while the husband attempts to woo her back. Though dotted with trenchant observations about what makes a marriage work or fold, this script by Lorenzo Semple, Jr. doesn't have enough meat on its bones for a feature-length film. Without understanding the history of the young marrieds, it's difficult getting a grasp on the sullen, sulking wife or her randy spouse. The celebratory finale seems lifted straight from "The Graduate" (itself based on Charles Webb), while the points being made regarding sexual appetite and the search for identity are all rather obvious. In the lead, glinty-eyed Richard Benjamin offers different facets of the horny, paranoid male, yet he doesn't have the punchy dialogue needed to turn this guy into a microcosm of the sex-obsessed modern-day husband. ** from ****
