A mostly worthless film
It's the 50's: everyone is dressed up at work and at home, pitchers of dry martinis are the order of the day, and liberal use of DDT is the best bet for killing aphids on roses. You can't help but smile at some of this stuff. There's nothing terribly amazing about the script in this romantic comedy, which has a couple (Claudette Colbert and Macdonald Carey) divorcing after 20 years of marriage, and a jet-setter and old flame (Zachary Scott) swooping in on her. What's fun is the cast - Colbert is a delight and looks fantastic at age 48, her son-in-law is played by a slender 21-year-old Robert Wagner, and a blonde fortune hunter who appears in a few scenes is played by 25-year-old Marilyn Monroe, right before she became mega-famous. It's light entertainment with a cutesy ending.
Remember the golden days of the 40's and 50's, with all the drama and frivolity of musicals and comedies. Yeah, this didn't fit into that category at all. A short, petty "comedy" about the eccentricities of divorce, and the beginnings of the lives of newlyweds, there was little to comment on kindly. It was so short the plot had nowhere to develop, the comedy, when someone tried for a laugh, was lacking, and the cast of brilliant stars (Claudette Colbert, Robert Wagner, Marilyn Monroe) weren't given a foot to stand on. Unless you're a diehard Monroe fan, steer clear of this borefest.
