Comedies of remarriage are a backbone of the screwball genre, and there’s several classics to be mined from the material (The Philadelphia Story and The Awful Truth come to mind immediately).

Robert (Jack Lemmon) and Nina Tracy (Judy Holliday) were once a happy couple, but eight years of marriage has taken a toll on their relationship. They decide to call it quits and get a divorce. In their ensuing freedom, they are excited to dive back into the world of dating. Nina has a date with a suave actor (Donald Curtis), and Robert meets a blonde bombshell (Kim Novak). However, when their dalliances get complicated, they quickly realize that single life might not be what they bargained for.

Phffft is not one of these films, as it takes a couple amusing gags, strong comedic actors, and then sticks interminable pieces in-between.   The title’s high-concept is more thoughtful than much of the writing. The title comes from a newspaper article describing the noise made when a marriage ends in divorce. It’s a little ridiculous, and the title is more than a little stupid, but that’s the level of commitment we’re working with here.   Judy Holliday and Jack Lemmon play the couple whose marriage goes belly up, find it difficult to readjust to married life, and eventual come back t” read more
