Director Gene Kelly demonstrates wonderful style and sophistication in this adult farce that stars Walter Matthau and Robert Morse as two husbands with one thing on their minds. Matthau is Paul Manning, a happily married "typical suburban male". Wanting other women but having no idea how to go about it, he turns to his friend, Ed (Morse), for a few tips on infidelity. Ed willingly dishes up some of the funniest advice and anecdotes ever seen - brought to life by a top cast that includes Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Joey Bishop, Side Caesar, Art Carney, Phil Silvers and Jayne Mansfield. Despite its delicate subject matter, this wild, wicked comedy is executed with such charm and affection that it won strong critical praise and was one of the top money-makers of its year.

I first saw this film about 20 years ago and enjoyed it then as a single man but now as a married man myself it is even more fun. Excellent performances by Walter Matthau and Inger Stevens as the perfect couple threatened by Walter's roving eye and a moral message brings the film to an uplifting climax.
