I'm a Melvyn Douglas fan, but have to admit this isn't one of his best comedies...though this still doesn't mean it's not worth seeing!
Celibate three months
ann and tice(?)
fruend tekks him to accept
she proposes 3 months
painful dinner party scene--bad
often folks' beahaviors are difficult to understand--suck as strippng miss campbell--tries too hard
Ann (Rosalind Russell) is a rich and successful business woman who wants to get married but is afraid to really commit since she's seen other marriages fail. So, she comes up with a novel idea...to marry a man in name only....or at least for three months. That way if they don't get along they can just go their separate ways. Well, it's not surprising that her boyfriend, Tice (Melvyn Douglas) isn't thrilled with this arrangement, but his friend convinces him to just go along with her and once married she'll abandon this dopey scheme. Well, not surprisingly, it doesn't go how either of them planned.
This film's weakest point is the script. The actors are quite nice but a few times they're made to repeat a few silly lines and the dinner party scene, in particular, is pretty bad. But fortunately, the good far outweighs the bad and overall it's well worth seeing even if it isn't one of Douglas' best.
