Secret Life of an American Wife ★★ 1968

A bored housewife (Jackson) tries to seduce a client of her husband's, with less than hilarious results. Too much dialogue, not enough genuine humor. Disappointing inversion of director Axelrod's “The Seven Year Itch.” 97m/C VHS . Walter Matthau, Anne Jackson, Patrick O'Neal, Edy Williams, John MacKay; D: George Axelrod; W: George Axelrod.
