Funny and outrageous look at a man's libido and marriage
Either you like Elliott Gould's sexual roguishness or you don't. I do. I thought this was very very funny (though easily open to charges of misogyny). Gould's character is completely immoral, treacherous and very funny in his dealings with his wife and other women.
The movie has the feel of Portnoy's Complaint - a sort of "My history of women and my sex drive" - co-starring Brenda Vaccaro (who's quite good) as the wife. Gould's character will do and say anything to have sex with anyone to whom he's attracted - regardless of present ties or the future consequences - which can be laugh out loud funny. Will many be outraged at the unfeeling attitudes toward the women so taken? Yes - particularly women. I enjoyed it.
