Audience Reviews for A Guide for the Married Man

  • Aug 29, 2018
    Gene Kelly directs this salad-lite comedy farce (filmed in the swing-tastic 60's ... free love, baby!) about how to cheat in your marriage and keep the marriage. The solution? Lie, baby, lie, and Robert Morse is the swinging nerd offering advice to nervous-but-tempted first timer Walter Matthau. There's plenty of inappropriate-in-the #MeToo era shots of women walking away from you with closeups of their butts. Gene Kelly made this??? And plenty of star cameos too. Light hearted fun.

    It was entertaining. I liked seeing the old cars and what everyone wore back then. Why they spent so long trying to figure out how to cheat on his wife, wasn't pleasant but was funny. I agree this movie is so sexist I'm waiting for the remake!

    Funny movie about the rules of cheating while married. Ed:" Basic principle number one: Never, NEVER say you'll be where you can be found not to be".
