“Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” and Me

The 1969 Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, a Paul Mazursky film, examines the late Sixties’ trends of “liberation”, such as touchy-feely therapy, as two married couples try them on for size.  Only slightly satirical, it’s a humane work with competent performances by Dyan Cannon and Elliott Gould, but it’s also a garrulous bore which doesn’t really offer a proper resolution to the characters’ contretemps.  Instead we get a flimsy what-the-world-needs-now-is-love conclusion (with Jackie DeShannon’s song on the soundtrack). 

An Unmarried Woman is still the Mazursky movie to see, not this one.
