Thornton Sayre, a respected college professor, is plagued when his old movies are shown on TV and sets out with his daughter to stop it. However, his former co-star is the hostess of the TV show playing his films and she has other plans.
Instead of a film, it seems more like a bad sitcom or a play by a local (and not very talented) theater troop!
A psychoanalyst is about to get married. However, at the same time things get out of hand with some of his patients and life becomes a total mess over the course of the film.
"Oh, Men! Oh, Women!" is an incredibly bad film. It's shocking, as the movie has some very good actors....and so I know you can't blame it on most of the actors*! No, I blame it mostly on two folks...the writers (I assume they were chimps) and the director (who must have demanded the actors emote MORE in every scene). It's really a shame, as with David Niven, Ginger Rogers, Dan Dailey, Barbara Rush and Tony Randall it SHOULD have been very good...or at least not irritating. Instead, it comes off like a terrible sitcom or local community theater production. Labored and unfunny throughout.
*I DO blame Dan Dailey. He was an experienced actor and I don't know how his performance could have been MORE shrill and LESS subtle. This has to be his worst performance.
