American couple Janet and Mike move to England for his business. She soon becomes paranoid that he is having an affair with his attractive secretary, and decides to get back at him by pretending she herself has been unfaithful.

When Philip and Cathy are driving up to the hotel in Bermuda:
1. He is driving on the right side of the road (In Bermuda you drive on the left); 2. He is driving a French Citroën DS19 car with the steering wheel on the left (virtually unknown in Bermuda, where they drive small British cars with the steering wheel on the right); and, 3. He is driving himself (Bermuda doesn't have car rental and only residents are allowed to own cars). See more »

A surprisingly funny film with some very good comedic performances. In particular, a wonderfully, gleefully neurotic Gig Young as Cary Grant's secretary. Love the scene when he asks his secretary to let down her hair and then take off her glasses. She remains unattractive. "Funny, he says, it always works in the movies." And what a great and bizarre first name Gig is.
Audrey Meadows is very good as well, as Doris Day's cynical roommate, and John Astin (of "The Addams Family" fame) nearly steals the show as a smarmy Government clerk. "Muscatel, for my lady's pleasure." Sure the plot is dated and predictable, but everything is handled with a light touch and the movie is very watchable. Love the scenes in the automat simply for nostaglia's sake.
Funniest moment. Gig young getting slapped by a hand that emerges from the tiny automat window.
