Olivia de Havilland,
Eileen is 22 and is smarting from her breakup with Russ. She comes to New York to visit her brother, Adam, who is an airline pilot. Eileen confides to her brother that she thinks she may be the only 22 year old virgin left in the world. Adam assures her that sex is not what all men look for and insists he hasn't slept around. Of course, Adam is lying and is in hot pursuit of a tryst with his occasional girlfriend Mona. However, Adam's date with Mona has a series of job related interruptions. Meanwhile, Eileen decides to see if she can have some fun for herself in New York, and seems to find the perfect candidate in Mike, a man she meets on the bus. But things get complicated when Russ pops in with a proposal and a mistaken assumption.Written by

I found this 1963 comedy very refreshing ... It hasn't dated too much I think.... Usually comedy around those years are a bit too silly... Situations are exaggerated.... Characters are over the top or fall into caricature.... In this film, the characters do fall into unusual situations but it is funny ... Situation is still quite realistic and the character of Jane Fonda is interesting..... The production made her smart and questioning the world around her. I like the relationship between sister and brother...it is not always developed in films....the character of the boyfriend is a bit too much.....one day, he doesn't want her any more and the next, he cannot live without her.
