Actually, the same old schlock, except that the first thirty minutes are in drag: a sort of Touch of Class screwball comedy which has been uneasily welded to a homosexual subject. Albert (King) wears aprons, designs frocks, and shacks up with Stella (likeable Meg Foster, playing a happily adjusted lesbian). But when Albert starts staying out nights, it looks like he's backsliding... A glossily persuasive film which presents its 'real' gays as neurotics or gangsters, and offers us so many clich├ęs about role reversal, marriage and pregnancy that it makes An Unmarried Woman look like an intelligent study of divorce.
