Time Out says

After Edwards' hopeless The Man Who Loved Women comes this altogether more successful piece which might be subtitled 'The Man Who Loved Two Women'. Moore is married to careerist lawyer Micki (Reinking), and yearns for a child which she will not provide. He takes cellist Maude (Irving) for a mistress, impregnates and marries her, only to find Micki too is pregnant. The film's greatest moments of comedy spring from the bigamous Moore's escalating panic in the face of keeping two marriages together but separate, culminating in a double delivery in adjacent hospital wards of frantic delirium; Keystone cops meet The Hospital. It is none the worse for being resolutely old-fashioned in its virtues, and - in its compassion towards all parties - marked by a complete absence of the sour element which distinguished previous Edwards comedies like '10' and S.O.B. CPea.
