      Kimberly Pierce Ticklish Business This type of sex comedy is one that is at home in the middle of the twentieth century, and Ira Wallach's script provides a savvy, but comedic insight into a number of the cultural struggles of this often considered pristine, whitewashed part of history. Rated: 4/5 Apr 21, 2022 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine [It] sets out to be one sort of comedy and winds up being something quite different-not only less "naughty" but less funny. Oct 7, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Pathetic comedy on the sexual mores of the American suburban male in the early 1960s. Rated: C Sep 20, 2016 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Sophisticated farce of 40+ years ago still fun. Rated: 3/5 May 11, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      Russ G A poor imitation of The Apartment; the only draw is bombshell Kim Novak. This was already old hat when it was on TV back in the late 60's. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/24/22 Full Review steve d The actors should have been better than this. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Tom M I find it hard to believe that even in 1962 the studios thought it was OK to think that 4 men (3 married) would share an apartment and 1 woman. I grew up in the 60's and 70's and women were treated poorly , as objects and 2nd class citizens. But this premise is ridiculous. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/29/19 Full Review Audience Member I wound up really liking this movie. The dated and stylish sets were so much fun to see, and I thought it was funny. The wives (and blonde) were portrayed more favorably than women on film are shown today. They were smart and committed to their families. I especially liked the reference to the Kennedys. I'm sure it was a fashionable movie for its day. I liked Kim Novak--She was funny, and her slouchy sweaters were so timely! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review jim b Pile of crap. Novak being busty and beautiful doesn't make this garbage worth watching.
