Marjorie Turner is suffocating. Her younger sister Jeanine has no ambition, and her eight year marriage to Harry puts her in constant competition with his family (all doctors), of whom he is also competing for the affections. One day, she snaps while food shopping, and beds a mysterious man, who dies during the moment of passion. When she forgets her wallet, a vertical-blinds salesman finds it, and things get complicated from there.Written by

If this movie had stuck with its black comedy premise all the way to the end it might have been a memorable film, as. e.g., the later "War of the Roses." As it is there is some marvellously funny dialogue in the first 2/3 of the movie, as well as some hilarious slapstick in the hotel room when Allie's and Pullman's characters are deciding how to deal with the corpse. The portrayal of the husband's all-doctor family is pretty good, too. Unfortunately all of this is wasted in pursuit of the prized Happy Ending, wherein Marjorie's infidelities are seen as a stepping stone to a fuller relationship with her chastened husband. Puh-leez.
