5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fast-Paced Good-Girl Sex Comedy of the 1960s February 5, 2009
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Jane Fonda did quite a few of these situation sex comedies early on in her career, before her "Barbarella" period, and long before she became a serious actress in "They Shoot Horses, Don't They" and "Klute". Most were based on hit Broadway plays, like "Barefoot in the Park" by Neil Simon. "Any Wednesday" is just such a light, sexy comedy based on a hit Broadway play, which plays up Ms. Fonda's All-American good looks and quick comic timing.

In this film, Ms. Fonda plays a young art gallery employee who is being aggressively courted by one of the richest financiers in the world, played with a twinkle in his eye by Jason Robards. Unfortunately the Robards character is also a married man, which is a definite no-no for the virginal Jane. But after a year of phone calls and romance, Robards catches Jane in a weak moment when she is about to lose her beloved apartment. The apartment is going co-op and she cannot afford to buy it. Rich Mr. Robards buys the apartment for Jane, and sets her up there as his once-a-week mistress -- on Wednesday nights when he has told his wife he is going out of town. That's the set-up and the end of Act 1.

Complications set in when a new secretary sends handsome, (and single) Dean Jones to the apartment, which Robards is calling an "executive suite" so he can get a tax write-off. At some point, the boss' wife also shows up and then the hilarity begins, since the wife finds Jones and Fonda in the apartment and immediately assumes they are a married couple visiting from out-of-town and being put up in her husband's executive suite.

I enjoy these frothy comedies from the sixties, and this is one of the cutest. Unfortunately it is not available on DVD yet, only on VHS. So in order to enjoy it, I ordered it through the Amazon downloading program which put it straight onto my computer for under ten bucks. Pretty good deal until I can get ahold of the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars any weds review February 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
cute movie, great cast, good story. the movie is easy to follow. anyone who likes romantic comedies will like this.the subject matter is not really suitable for young kids. it is about a married man who keeps a mistress. Jane Fonda is perfect in roles like this- cute, funny but not the sharpest tool in the shed. good on screen chemistry with dean jones. If you like jane Fondas early work, you'll like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Just tell him I don't need balloons anymore!" April 5, 2011
Format:DVD
This was yet another bedroom comedy/farce that ran successfully on Broadway for several seasons in the mid 1960's. Although Sandy Dennis as Ellen Gordon won a Tony Award, at that point of her career she was more a stage name than movie star. So the role was given to Jane Fonda who was in the forefront for most of the ingénue roles in films of Broadway romantic comedies of the early to mid 1960's. Since Ellen is the star role, and the film revolves around her, this would seem to be a good choice.

Ellen Gordon (Jane Fonda), a thirty-year-old child-woman has been the mistress of married business tycoon John Cleves (Jason Robards) for two years and is both guilty and unhappy about her status. Cleves' company bought her East Side apartment in Manhattan when it was going co-op and she couldn't afford the price. Technically, it's now the executive suite of his company to be used by visiting businessmen and dignitaries. However, it never is, Ellen remains living there alone except for Wednesdays when Cleves spends the night with her. On Ellen's birthday, Miss Linsley (Ann Prentiss), Cleves' inept new secretary sends Cass Henderson (Dean Jones), a young out of town businessman, who has urgent business to settle with Cleves over to the apartment just after he has left. Surprising Ellen, Cass suspects she is being kept by someone high in the company, possibly Cleves himself, and stalls for time to try and find out. In the meantime, Miss Linsley strikes again and sends Dorothy Cleves (Rosemary Murphy) over to the apartment after Cleves. Dorothy assumes Ellen and Cass are married, likes them, but is appalled by the décor of the "executive suite".

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Does New York... Delightfully July 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm a New Yorker living in The South, so whenever I get into a New York State of mind, I get a quick fix by heading to my DVD library to find Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany." But there are also three Jane Fonda gems that I rely upon to bring me all the way back home: Barefoot in the Park, Sunday in New York, and this one, Any Wednesday. There is something about Ms. Fonda and The City. They were made for each other - brash and sassy, with impeccable comic timing and an understated innocence. There was also something so special about Jane and romantic comedy at that stage of her career. Any Wednesday is a New York romp that hinted at the emergence of a great actress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throwback fun June 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Cute, benignly chauvanistic & adulterous, it nevertheless charms & amuses. Cast is endearing, especially Dean Jones and Rosemary Murphy who ring true like a town hall bell. Perfect pitch. Perfect home run.

Format:DVD
Ellen (Jane Fonda) can not afford her apartment. John Cleves (Jason Robards) the married man with which she has an understanding (every Wednesday), comes up with a scheme to pay for the apartment as a company location for guests. John is very thoughtful he tells Ellen that He will be getting a divorce "now where have we heard that one before?" And even gives her a diamond bracelet (which happens to have the company logo imbedded.)

Ditsy secretary (Ann Prentiss) send irate supplier (Dean Jones) to stay at guest location as it was designed for. As you can guess things get convoluted from there. Who gets the girl? Who does the girl want? Does wife (Rosemary Murphy) ever get wise? What is the importance of sleeves and balloons?

If you liked "Sunday in New York"; You will love this.
