Daft sexist comedy stars Lemmon as a successful cartoonist who loathes the idea of marriage. His widely syndicated cartoon strip about secret agent "Bash Brannigan" has earned him a fortune and a lifestyle the envy of any devout bachelor. But Bash has become a kind of alter ego, and Lemmon

has begun to act out aspects of his comic character's life. Into Lemmon's well-organized life comes Italian blonde bombshell Lisi, as sexy and sensuous a woman ever to pop out of a stag party cake. In fact, that's when Lemmon sees and falls in love with her. He's drunk, she snakes out of the cake,

and he wakes up the next morning with Lisi beside him. She wears a wedding ring and he realizes to his horror that he's gotten married to someone he doesn't even know.

This dated comedy is saved by Lemmon's comedic genius which eschews macho. There is solid support from Mayehoff and Trevor, and Lisi is gorgeous to behold.
