Bob and Carol Sanders are a young couple who are definitely part of the hip generation. Their slightly older friends Ted plus wife Alice Henderson are a little stodgy and shocked by things like swimming in the buff.
During summer vacation on Fire Island, three young people--a girl and two guys--become so close that they form a sort-of threesome. When an uncool girl tries to infiltrate the trio's newly ... See full summary »
Documentary film-maker Bob Sanders and his wife Carol attend a group therapy session that serves as the backdrop for the opening scenes of the film. Returning to their Los Angeles home, the newly "enlightened" couple chastise their closest friends, Ted and Alice, for not coming to grips with their true feelings. Bob insists that everyone "feel" rather than intellectualize their emotions, and Carol pronounces "that's beautiful" after anyone says anything even remotely personal. Ted and Alice humor their friends, but it is obvious that there is a good-natured sexual tension at work within the foursome.Written by
In the psychiatrist scene, Alice is sitting directly across from the shrink. But in her close-ups, her chin is raised and she is obviously talking "up" to the camera. See more »
I got angry at him once. I don't know, I think it was because Bob and I - did I say Bob?
That was a Freudian slip. Ted - *Ted* and I - you're looking at me - Ted and I were going to have sex and - wanted to have sex - and - well, Jimmy walked into the room. And it was daytime and I got nervous. So, I scolded at him for not knocking on the door before he walked in.

One of the best of 1969 with Natalie Wood and Dyan Cannon at their sexiest. Perfect casting, great story, and Mazursky's best film. I know the critics were split on this one, but it came out at the right time and it holds up today. What's not to like about this? Elliott Gould was never more befuddled, Dyan Cannon's best acting when she was gorgeous, Robert Culp's only decent movie, and Natalie Wood was born to play Carol.
Certainly a 9 out 10! Mazursky would never again be so in touch with the times and the ending is NOT a cop-out! Check this out. Great stuff! Even the encounter session scenes have the ring of truth for that sort of thing. This movie is great!
