But where was the comedy...?

I had never heard about this 1986 comedy from writer and director Ziggy Steinberg prior to sitting down and watching it for the first time here in 2024. In fact, I didn't even know who was starring in it when I opted to watch it.

The storyline in "The Boss' Wife" was mediocre. I can't claim that I was particularly entertained throughout the course of the 83 minutes that the movie ran for. The narrative was bland and sort of devoid of comedy, and that made sitting through the movie not a particularly enjoyable thing.

Something that spoke in favor of the movie was the cast ensemble. There were some good talents on the cast ensemble, just a shame that they had so little to work with. The movie had the likes of Daniel Stern, Fisher Stevens, Martin Mull, Robert Costanzo and Christopher Plummer on the cast list.

Sure, "The Boss' Wife" was watchable, but it was also a very forgettable movie. And come tomorrow, I am sure that the movie has faded from my memory already. And this is definitely not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time.

My rating of this lackluster comedy from 1986 lands on a very generous four out of ten stars.

I don't think I like him

Joel Keefer (Daniel Stern) and Janet Keefer (Melanie Mayron) are a married couple having trouble conceiving. He's a busy low level stockbroker. Louise Roalvang (Arielle Dombasle) is the wife of the boss Mr. Roalvang (Christopher Plummer) who loves image above skills. Tony Dugdale (Martin Mull) is the top analyst despite his incompetence due to Roalvang loving his hair. Joel takes on Tony which gets heated when a department head job opens up. They are going to a resort to battle it out. Carlos Delgado (Fisher Stevens) is an outrageous experimental artist.

This comedy starts fine. I like the couple initially but he starts to annoy me over time. I generally like Daniel Stern, but he is too bumbling and he's a big jerk to Janet in one scene. If he's being idiotic, there's less reason to pick him for the job. He is still much better than the annoying Fisher Stevens. This comedy rises and falls on Joel's likeability. I don't think I like him. He needs to be much nicer to Janet.

Rare chance to see Arielle Dombasle in English speaking role .....

Arielle Dombasle's nude scenes are definitely the highlight of this lightweight comedy. Christoper Plummer plays the naive boss, while his wife, Dombasle, makes a hobby out of seducing her husband's employees. The cast is fine, Daniel Stern is a married man with fertility problems, Martin Mull is memorable in his role of "professional ass kisser", and Lou Jacobi is also nice to see. It is the simplistic script that is lacking. One memorable scene is Plummer having his lunch and condiments delivered by one of his model trains. but overall things drag. Somehow this comedy combining abstinence and infidelity should have worked better than it does. ... - MERK
