“Ma, sooner or later, there comes a point in a man’s life when he’s gotta face some facts. And one fact I gotta face is that, whatever it is that women like, I ain’t got it.” Stuck between giving up and selling out, Marty, a middle-aged bachelor, has an average disposition when it comes to love and marriage. His mother and family push for marriage while his friends encourage a care-free life of perpetual bachelorhood. However, at a dance Marty meets Clara, a teacher. For once, he can accept the facts and be happy but his mother and his pals have to have their say. Discouraged and hopeless Marty contemplates standing Clara up. Will true love win in the end? Either way you’ll find yourself rooting for him as he tries to find out. (Jordan Scharaga)
