Storyline

Living in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of New York City, lawyer Chris Walters and his wife, the former Alice Ganz, are celebrating their thirteenth anniversary in wedded bliss with their two children, Ockie and Debbie. On the anniversary day, Chris and Alice even decide on the spur of the moment to recreate a romantic tryst they had from years earlier. The only major disagreement Chris and Alice seem to have in their life is on the presence or not of a television set in the house, Chris who believes one will ruin the family dynamic. Things for the Walters take a turn for the worse when first Alice's parents buy their daughter and son-in-law a television set as a gift, and second, while in a drunken stupor at the anniversary party, Chris divulges a secret to Alice's parents that was kept solely between Alice and himself for fourteen years. Both incidents result in an argument between Chris and Alice. Going from bad to worse, daughter Debbie believes her parents may be headed for a ... Written by Huggo

A head-splitting farce
13 October 2002 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

New York family is the last in their neighborhood to get a television set, which nearly ruins David Niven's marriage to Mitzi Gaynor. Bedroom comedy that rarely ventures into the bedroom(and nothing sexy happens there anyway). Gaynor as an actress has about as much range as an oven--she turns on, she turns off. Film's sole compensation is a supporting performance by perky Patty Duke, pre-"Miracle Worker", as Niven's daughter. She's delightful; "Happy Anniversary" is not. * from ****
