The film's title refers to the two female characters who Dudley Moore marries both in this love-triangle boudoir-farce. This Blake Edwards movie substitutes the "love fantasy" of Moore having a beautiful younger woman in Moore and Edwards' earlier 10 (1979) with the "love fantasy" of Moore having two women in this film.

When the wives go to the OB/GYNE they go into rooms next to each other. Micki goes into an exam room on the right with the nurse's desk clearly to the right. However, when she is seen exiting, she exits an exam room that is blocked by the nurse's desk area. See more »
A television reporter, married to a lawyer, falls for another sharp lady, a lovely musician. Before he knows it, he has two wives...and both are pregnant! By 1984, Dudley Moore's film choices (mostly comedies) were starting to congeal, and with each new release came a sigh of resignation that he was never going to be Arthur again. Blake Edwards (who directed in Moore in "10") allows his star too much time to work his way into comedic fitful states, and continually dotes on Moore as the diminutive actor scurries from room to room. Still, this screenplay by Jonathan Reynolds has a witty edge (and Edwards, naturally, embraces its wild slapstick bent), resulting in some very bright, often very funny sequences. As the ladies in Dudley's life, Ann Reinking and Amy Irving are both terrific, helping Moore and Edwards turn out their best film in years. **1/2 from ****
