Movie Info

In this comedy, advertising agent Sam Bissel (Jack Lemmon) gets himself in a mess of trouble when he agrees to pose as the husband of his wife's friend, Janet (Romy Schneider), so that she can fulfill the conditions of a relative's will and inherit a huge fortune. However, when some of Janet's suspicious cousins and Sam's misguided client enter the picture, things start to go hilariously wrong.

The problem with the marital satire is that it goes on for too long, maybe like some marriages.
