The confirmed bachelor Stanley Ford (Jack Lemmon) is a successful cartoonist of the comic strip Bash Brannigan published in 463 newspaper. He lives in Manhattan with his butler Charles (Terry-Thomas), who is proud of his master´s lifestyle. One day, Stanley attends a bachelor party where he drinks too much. On the next morning, there is a ravishing Italian blonde (Virna Lisi) naked in his bed and soon he learns that he got married with her last night. Stanley heads to his lawyer´s office to divorce Mrs. Ford but his lawyer Harold Lampson (Eddie Mayehoff) advises that it is not an easy task. Stanley´s life turns upside-down, and he plots to murder his wife. When Mrs. Ford learns his intention, she vanishes and Stanley is accused of murdering his wife and hiding her body. What will happen to him?
"How to Murder Your Wife" is a funny 1965 comedy that makes the male viewer laugh of the situations. Jack Lemmon performs a confirmed bachelor and male chauvinist. Virna Lisi is extremely beautiful and sexy and disturbs his controlled life. The moralist conclusion ruins the storyline and is absolutely inconsistent to Stanley Ford´s behavior. My vote is six.
