A good cast helps this by the numbers comedy.
20 February 2019 | by mleatherwood1See all my reviews

This was included in the first season of The ABC Movie of the Week launched in 1969. One of the series first tries at comedy, it's got a good cast, notably Eve Arden, who elevates every scene she's in. Bill Daily's character has some funny moments, as does Herb Edelman's. Elsa Lanchester is delightfully eccentric, and on a historical note this is one of the films that Ann Prentiss made in her heyday before darker times befell her. Elinor Donahue and Ruth Buzzi are also on hand as 2 of the wives "in name only". There are some amusing ideas floating around but not enough to really get it going. Episodic in that each couple has a story which unfolds around the premise. That helps it from bogging down more than it does, but overall it's just ok.
