Time Out says

One of the early Drew/Leacock efforts, a cinéma-vérité portrait of Jane Fonda which tracks her through rehearsals for her Broadway debut in 1960 (a comedy called The Fun Couple). Since Vadim and Barbarella were still to come, this is Jane the eager ingénue, with political protest not rating even a whisper. The tensions of rehearsal and opening night are well caught, but the rest of the story (Sardi's after the show, unkind reviews, ephemeral heartbreak) is no different from the average showbiz epic.
