Plot Summary

Rose and Gregory, both Columbia University professors meet when Rose's sister answers Gregory's "personals" ad. Several times burned, the handsome-but-boring Gregory believes that sex has ruined his life, and has deliberately set out to find and marry a woman with absolutely no sex appeal. Greg thinks he's found what he's looking for in Rose, a plain, plump English Lit professor who can't compete with her gorgeous mother and sister. More out of mutual admiration and respect than love, Greg and Rose marry. Greg assumes that Rose understands that he is not interested in a sexual relationship. He's mistaken, and their marriage is nearly destroyed when Rose tries to consummate their relationship. While Gregory is out of the country on a lecture tour, Rose diets and exercises to transform herself into a sexy siren in a last-ditch attempt to save her marriage. Written by Anthony Bruce Gilpin

Trivia Dudley Moore was originally cast in the role that went to George Segal. He was fired by Barbra Streisand for not remembering his lines. These were the first symptoms of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a brain disorder that would later kill Moore. Conversely, in the earlier 10 (1979), Segal was replaced by Moore. See more »
