Overall: B

A hypochondriac convinced he is about to die, decides to find a new husband for his wife. However, his behavior causes her to become suspicious of his motives in this madcap romantic comedy starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson.

Violence: B

The film contains many instances of comedic antics such as: a woman falling when trying to crawl into an open window, a woman at risk of having an accident when her golf cart goes out of control, a woman smacking a man’s face, pushing a man in a wheelchair out of a door and into a mattress leaning against a wall, and throwing pill bottles at a character. One character punches another.

Sexual Content: B

Man’s bare chest is shown when he is showering, changing his shirt and allowing the doctor to listen to his heart. Woman is seen in slightly revealing pajamas. A bachelor asks out women who are recently separated from their husbands. Married man admires a woman. Allusions to and accusations of infidelity are made. A married couple kisses on several occasions, and is shown cuddling together in bed. Married people are kissed by someone other than their spouse on several occasions. Script contains mild sexual innuendos and references to intimate relationships.

 

Language: A-

At Least: One term of deity used as an expletive, one mild profanity and name-calling.

Alcohol / Drug Use: C

Main character uses and perhaps abuses over the counter and prescription medications. Main characters smoke and drink throughout the film. One character turns to alcohol to help him deal with unhappy news. A main character is depicted as inebriated.

 

Miscellaneous Concerns:

Female characters are portrayed as helpless and financially inept. On the advice of a friend, a character lies: negative consequences are shown.
