Forgettable
30 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie screened at Cinevent in 2012 and I don't remember a thing about it. Thank goodness for the notes I kept on it.

Fired Wife is a cute but forgettable story about a couple who gets married before they really finalize their career plans with each other, which ends in a trip to Reno. Tig (Louise Albritton) is a beautiful theater assistant who gets the chance to direct her first show, but she absolutely cannot be married to do the job (even though she is). Hank (Robert Paige) is in radio advertising, and his close association with an actress on a kiddie program lands him in hot water with the wife. I like these breezy B-movies a lot, but unfortunately not all of them stick out in your mind long after you've watched them.
