A bevy of happily married couples each get the same letter telling them that the judge who joined them in holy matrimony was legally unauthorized to do so, and that they are not married according to the law. For some this means sorrow, for some this means frustration, and for some this means freedom. All the actors involved do a hilarious job with the sitcom script, though anyone renting it will probably do so because of the supporting performance played by a young Marilyn Monroe.
