Alan Arkin is at his best, and his three prospective affairs produce plenty of laughs. Several of the lines are equal to Woody Allen's best neurotic outbursts. I did not find the movie too play-like because the rapid exchanges of often hilarious conversation keeps it moving along. Sally Kellerman, Paula Prentiss, and Renee Taylor offer three distinct and quite challenging opportunities for Barney Cashman to stray. The point that is made throughout is that life is passing Barney by and he needs to do something to break out of his dreary existence. His Mother's apartment will never be the same, and neither will Barney. I recommend this movie for only one reason. It is funny. - MERK
