Featuring much of the same cast and crew as Frank's 1973 film A Touch of Class, this film is about a couple's constant meeting and clashing.
It marked Martin Short's film debut.
While visiting Switzerland, an American college professor, Adam, keeps running into a divorced British secretary, Patricia, wherever they go. First their cars collide. Then they smash into one another on a ski slope, each breaking a leg.
In between numerous quarrels, the two develop lust and love. They hastily marry, but the disagreements continue. Patricia decides to leave, so Adam decides to fake a suicide. They lose and find each other, again and again.

Critic Roger Ebert began his 28 June 1979 Chicago Sun-Times review: "This movie is terrible. It's awful. It is inconceivable to me that the same people who made 'A Touch of Class' had anything to do with it, but they did."
