Trivia

A Guide for the Married Man (1967) was a leering, sexist farce in which Walter Matthau's character was being coerced into philandering against his better judgment, whereas the dIstaff TV movie presented the straying wives seeking extramarital affairs in response to feeling neglected or betrayed by their husbands.

A bizarre time capsule of the late 70's...
21 July 2000 | by LuvSoprSee all my reviews

A bizarre time capsule of the late 70's, with material that would be completely dated if filmed today. It's a sunshiny look at a mindset that could have been handled more seriously, but probably done even more poorly if the producers had tried. Kopell and Hillerman give amusing supporting performances. Cybill looks gorgeous and wears her (2 dozen or so) outfits with great style. Almost worth watching simply for the guest appearances and fun final scenes, but if you don't see it, you're not missing out.
