Everybody knows that I can't swim
31 May 2013 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** It's when handsome Ray Marchand, Robert Horton, laid his eyes on the pretty and cute as a pair of pink lased panties Nyla Foster, Anne Francis, it was love or better lust at first sight. The only problem that Ray had in all this was that he's already unhappily married to this battle ax of a wife of his Gladys, Vivienne Segal, who's not going to let her boy toy, who's almost 30 years younger then her, go so easily. And if he does leave her he'll end up without as much as a red cent of the millions that she has.

Wanting to dump his wife and at the same time get into Nyla's hot pants Ray soon finds out from Nyla that his wife Gladys is both very into fishing but at the same time can't swim. This gives Ray a brilliant idea in getting into fishing, which he hates, himself in order to set Gladys up for an accident he's planning for her on the high seas or lake by taking her out for a quite day of fishing.

***SPOILERS*** When the big day comes Ray getting a basket full of beer and sandwiches from Nyla, who's in with his plan to deep six his old lady, and off the two go out in the middle of the lake on Gladys motor boat. What happens next was something that Ray never planned for. Doing his best to off his wife he was soon to realize that Gladys in her not being able to swim was far worse for him then for her. And another thing that Ray never planned on was that there was something else in the basket that Nyla gave him besides sandwiches and beer bottles.
