Accountant Robert Tracey can judge a client’s character by examining their checkbook and tax return. And when he takes Nina on as a client, he falls in love with her receipts as well as the woman! When Robert and Nina decide to call it quits after nine years of marriage, Nina turns to her domineering mother for advice and Robert goes out on the singles scene with his wingman, Charlie. But Nina and Robert keep running into each other during their miserable dates with ill-suited partners. This was Lemmon’s second film in 1954 with Holliday.
