William "Bill" Dekker (Davis) is a newly divorced swinger who goes to work for an attorney (Feldshuh) as an investigator. His assignments have him tracking down divorced men who have reneged on their alimony and child-support payments, a twist of irony considering not only his chauvinistic tendencies, but also the fact that he is himself relying on the money he receives from his assignments to cover his own alimony payments. The film takes its title from the song of the same name, which can be heard over the opening credits.
