Sweden turns out to be far more liberal sexually than the United States. Bob, having met an attractive interior designer, Karin (Dina Merrill), decides to take her away for a romantic weekend at a mountain resort.

JoJo, however, has accepted a similar offer from Erik (Jeremy Slate), who is Bob's new assistant. Originally seen as a respectable suitor, Erik turns out to be a playboy and a cad. A girl thought to be his cousin, Marti, is actually a former girlfriend.

Kenny turns up and brings Marti along to the resort, where the three couples continue to awkwardly encounter one another. Kenny finally has his fill of Erik, knocking him out with his guitar. On a voyage home, the ship's captain performs a double wedding ceremony.

Critical reception

Howard Thompson of The New York Times loathed the film:

Other reviews were mixed.

Hope was so impressed with Avalon's work, he signed Avalon to appear on his television show.
