The titular "dangerous wives" of this light farce from writer/director Luigi Comencini are Claudina (Giorgia Moll), Tosca (Sylva Koscina), and Ornella (Dorian Gray). While their husbands enjoy a hunting trip, the wives discuss the men's fidelity. Claudina, sure of her Federico (Renato Salvatori), wins a bet on his truthfulness and makes Tosca pay up by performing an exotic dance that was her specialty when she was younger. Tosca's husband, Pirro (Nino Taranto), frets that his boss Bruno (Franco Fabrizi) is attracted to her, which increases the antipathy against Tosca held by Ornella, Bruno's wife. It is the smitten Federico who tries to rendezvous with Tosca, but the unexpected appearance of Pirro and Bruno puts an end to that, and all the husbands return to their respective wives.
