Bachelor in Paradise (1961)

A cute little sex comedy. A.J. Niles (Bob Hope) is the best selling author of a series of bachelor books describing the wants of women all over the world. Even though he has made a lot of money he is in trouble with the IRS. It seems that his accountant has run off with his money and has not paid A.J.'s taxes for several years. To save A.J. from prision his publisher has a wonderful idea. he will set him up under an assumed name in Paradise, one of the best subdivision's in America. There he will write about what the American suburban woman wants. However, A.J. causes a major rift in the neighborhood. All the husbands are jealous and want him out. However, there is one woman who really wants him to stay - his landlady Rosemary Howard (Lana Turner).

This was a fun movie to watch. Hope and Turner were funny as the mismatched pair of A.J. and Rosemary. Paula Prentiss was also wonderful as one of A.J.'s disciples, Laura Delavane. All in all it was a nice movie to watch on a Saturday afternoon.
