Allan Felix, film critic and recently deserted husband, lives in a drab and lonely apartment and has this thing about Humphrey Bogart. Felix is a professional write of commentary for Film Quarterly magazine and is a movie geek… If only he had some of Bogart’s technique. Bookish and insecure with women, Allan’s hero Bogey comes to the rescue, with a fantastic bevy of beauties played out in hilarious fantasy sequences. Fixed up by friends (Dick and Linda) with gorgeous women, he’s so awkward that even Bogey’s patience is tried.
Allan mostly resembles a disheveled, friendly dog and this is what ultimately charms his best friend’s wife, Linda. It’s a tough life, making it in the world of beautiful people, but if you can’t be a hero it helps to have one…
