Good Neighbor Sam (1964)

Columbia Pictures
Directed by David Swift
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Mill Creek)

Languishing ad executive Jack Lemmon saves an account by being the only staff member with an unblemished family life. It's all put in jeopardy when he poses as the husband of his wife's best friend so she can qualify for a 15 million dollar inheritance. It's all innocent enough, until her ex husband shows up and ends up moving in with his wife to complete the charade. The situation is original, but it goes on far too long (over 2 hours), and the comedy is often sexist and dated.
