A womanizing pharmaceutical salesman in it for the money meets a jaded young artist suffering from early symptoms of Parkinson's disease, and they fall head over heels in love. Smart, old-fashioned comedy that twists and updates its standard-issue plot with healthy dollops of sex and wisecracking dialogue, adeptly performed by an excellent cast.
