dick director bob evers

(ABC, 4/14/1974, 120 mins). A delightful adult comedy with a stellar cast headed by Gene Wilder and Bob Newhart, dealing with the marital and business problems of a couple of middle-aged men who continue their night out with the boys even after the breakup of their Thursday evening poker game. Made in 1971 as a theatrical release, it was shelved for several years before eventually being given a television premiere.
