Revealing Comedy
17 January 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Good entry as both entertainment and for a peek at gender roles, 1950's style. The comedy comes from reversing the norm—she works, he stays home. In those days women were expected to be housewives and mothers, while men earned the living. Seems like a bygone era when one paycheck would be enough to support an entire family, but that was mostly the case. Anyway, things don't look promising when there's another reversal and he starts work while she stays home. After all, as they discover, not all women are born housekeepers and cooks, despite the 50's norm.

Carey and Caulfield inject their husband and wife roles with plenty of energy, while the script and direction make the most out of the amusing set-ups. All in all, it's a revealing and high quality 30-minutes.
