Plot Summary
Busy housewife Julie Messinger's (Dyan Cannon) only gripes about her art-director husband, Richard (Laurence Luckinbill), are that he's a little selfish and too committed to his job. It's not until a routine operation gone awry leaves him in a coma that Julie learns his secrets. Richard had been carrying on numerous affairs, some of them with Julie's close friends. Stunned at how naïve she's been, Julie works through her pain by way of a lot of drinking and a few torrid affairs of her own.
