Given all the monkey business going on involving David Letterman, Steve Phillips (ESPN), John Edwards, Eliot Spitzer and these other losers, I thought I would put up a trailer I found recently on the Internet from the exceptionally silly Sixties movie A Guide for the Married Man.
I found out about the video from Mark Evanier's website, which is a great repository of cool, relicky things from the Sixties (usually about cartoon characters and the people who draw them). Anyway, he kind of has the same semi-repulsed reaction I have about the whole premise of the film. I like the sexy aspects of the movie and all the women in it, but like Evanier said, the whole premise seems to make light of marriage and makes it seem as if cheating on your wife is a fun activity and a good idea! In the movie, Robert Morse gives Walter Matthau tips on how to get away with cheating on your wife. That's basically the entire plot.
Oh, and by the way, his wife in the movie is starved for sex and wants to make love to her husband. She wants sex with her husband! So Matthau's character really has no good reason to cheat on her.
