Basically, Near Mrs. is a gross film with an annoyingly spelled title about an unlikeable and immoral man with two wives and a mistress who lies his way through life to spend time with them, deceives his dumb as a post and also occasionally annoying would-be employee to cover up for him and finally gets in trouble for his idiotic lies in the first place when the Dumb one gets caught up with Russians, who have an out-of-date fued with Americans and it all leads up to a ridiculous conclusion and ending.
Amazingly enough, it's a pretty entertaining movie, too.
I honestly was not fond of Judge Reinhold as the lead, or his character, but not to worry, the movie basically belongs to the second lead, played by the always likeable Casey Siemaszko, in an incredibly stupid but amusing enough subplot involving Russians. The Cold War was sort of over by then, but nevertheless, the Russians are portrayed in a pretty silly manner. But I guess everyone in this film was. I don't know if it's intentional or not(probably not), but nobody in this film is a wise and likeable protaginist. Instead, they're all presented with faults(Reinhold's character is an arrogant bigamest, Siemaszko's character is very childish, and incompetant(and has a few very bad lines, but oh well)), the American's aren't really to be trusted(there was one character who, to me, seemed to be some suggestion of Alger Hiss, but I'm not sure if it was supposed to be or not). Basically, it's something where we can watch and laugh at ourselves and our mistakes. And at the film, too, since it is sort of dumb, but it's entertaining enough and easy to follow. Better than most "bad" movies.
