The "wise wife" is Helen Blaisdell (Phyllis Haver), the loving missus of John Blaisdell (Owen Moore). Unfortunately, John's head is turned by a younger woman, saucy flapper Jenny Lou (Jacqueline Logan). Rather than scratch Jenny Lou's eyes out, Helen allows her rival to see what life would be like as John's wife. When the girl finds out that John is as dull-witted and inconsiderate as any other man, she heads for the hills, with Helen moving in to reclaim her imperfect mate, who is at a loss to figure out what has happened. Generally amusing, Wise Wife tends to rely a bit too heavily on wisecracking subtitles for its bigger laughs.
