A happily married man spies a beautiful model and becomes obsessed with meeting and possibly courting her.
Writer-Director Wilder has fashioned an ironic, worldly, yet sternly moral comedy that gives an energizing twist to every farcical convention and finds the perfect timing for every rubber-faced reaction to calamity.
[A] broad, unfunny Hollywood remake of the broad, only vaguely funny French original Pardon Mon Affaire.
The film drones on through all the clichés of infidelity to a resolution that isn't emotionally, morally or comedically satisfying.
The project as a whole is a lot less mawkish than we've come to expect from Wilder's directorial efforts. Still, it ain't exactly state of the art.
Fortunately, most of the film is more appealing than its premise.
The so-called farce is just degrading prattle that drags on much longer than it should.
The laughs roll along readily as Wilder tries one idea after another to sneak out on wife Judith Ivey and family to rendevous with Le Brock.
Wilder is at his frantic best, ably supported by the likes of real-life wife Gilda Radner and Midnight Run's Charles Grodin.
There are moments of real humor and real emotion in this otherwise frivolous sex comedy.
