Five married couples discover, to their shock, that they're not really married! The justice of the peace who presided over their nuptials didn't have a valid license. When they learn the news five years later, each couple must decide if they will remarry. Radio hosts Steve (Fred Allen) and Ramona (Ginger Rogers) couldn't harbor more animosity toward each other; but does that mean they should go their separate ways? Annabel, recently crowned Mrs. Mississippi, has more of a semantic problem. Read More Read Less

Bob Thomas Associated Press We're Not Married is a clever idea carried out with mixed results. Jul 24, 2019 Full Review Nell Dodson Russell Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder Another good idea gone rambling. Jan 14, 2022 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Five separate stories are wrapped up in this one, and some of them don t click. It s worth seeing, though, if only to enjoy Fred Allen and Ginger Rogers as professional lovey-doveys. Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jun 26, 2005 Full Review Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) Uneven but entertaining multi-star comedy.

Jarrod R Overall, an interesting concept, albeit far-fetched, but it provided some necessary laughs and misunderstandings along the way. What could possibly go wrong if you found that you suddenly weren't married? We followed the stories of five such couples, and the twists and turns did they go through. The most compelling story was the final one featuring Mitzi Gaynor and Eddie Bracken, who many GenXers might know better as Roy Wally, the owner of Wally World from the movie Vacation. Their story seem to have the biggest stakes, which provided just the proper amount of emotional impact to blend with the comedy. All told, there were many fine performances throughout, but the transitions and connective tissue was a bit disjointed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/25/24 Full Review Steve D No one is given anything to do. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Dumb movie. Vignettes. Fred Allen, Ginger Rogers, Zsa Zsa Gabor. 5 couples find out they aren't really married. Entertaining Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/14/19 Full Review kevin w 5 short stories tied together with a simple plot device: a marrying judge is not officially recognised for another week, yet performs 5 ceremonies unaware of the time element. And so we get to look in on the lives of those couples who discover that they have to decide whether or not to marry again, and this time legally. The opener has Ginger Rogers and Fred Allen as a bickering pair of "happy" morning radio personalities. Though their story is lame, the performance they put on of their program is okay. None of the stories are wow! worthy. I liked best the tale of the golddigger Zsa Zsa Gabor's comeuppance when she tries to bamboozle hapless mogul Louis Calhern. The affair as a whole is only mildly entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun farce, as five unsuspecting couples discover they were never legally married, so they have to decide all over again if the trouble is worth it. Smooth directing by Edmund Goulding to nicely tie together the five stories. Ginger Rogers and Fred Allen are my favourites of a fine cast. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member gr8 cast makes this one patterned after o. henry's 'full house' Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
