Wonderful Comedy
11 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Help Wanted: Male is an adorable comedy. Anyone who likes Suzanne Pleshette or Gil Gerard will love it. It's funny, light-hearted, and clever. It's actually an old-fashioned kind of "battle of the sexes" comedy. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes those kinds of films. It's too bad that it's so hard to find! I had to buy my copy on EBay (or was it Half-Bay?) after looking for it for years and years (and paid quite a bit for it).

It's too bad Suzanne Pleshette and Gil Gerard didn't make more movies. In this film, they sizzled together.

Anyway, it was worth the wait and the price. I've watched it several times. I think it's clever, uplifting, and fun.
