      Richard Brody New Yorker With winks and nods at science fiction and Hitchcock's "Vertigo," a dream sequence, and a film-within-a-film, Tashlin celebrates pop culture as a mind-expanding Freudian truth serum. Mar 23, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Tom M Silly film ... similar to a long episode of 'Three's Company' but funny nonetheless. Terry-Thomas as a man who drives women wild makes for hilarious circumstances. Tuesday Weld is adorable as Holm's daughter. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/02/20 Full Review Audience Member this film is both funny and enjoyable and annoying and stupid. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member another good film due to great casting and a dedicated crew. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Although this movie is at times funny and enjoyable, it is at other times annoying and stupid. It's got a good cast, though. It's just not all that interesting, the charm wears thin. Overall it's an okay movie, not good, but not bad. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Just when I was thinking this was fairly restrained for a Tashlin film, the movie cut to a towel-clad woman eating a huge wedge of cake on a vibrating bed. Best part: Tuesday Weld's character's inexplicable decision that the best way to get her future stepfather to let her stay in his house is not to actually explain who she is, but instead to adopt a pseudo-Judy-Holliday tough girl voice and concoct a backstory about escaping from reform school. Which makes perfect sense, assuming you've seen "Kitten with a Whip", although this actually predates that. Best quote: random woman throwing herself at the Professor growls, "Do it where the lipstick is!" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member OK, the story, tripping from one misunderstanding to another, isn't the best, and I just can't buy Terry-Thomas as a girl magnet, but it's a CinemaScope Frank Tashlin picture. Tashlin is a master of color and wide screen movies. It's worth seeing, but only wide screen. If it's cropped don't bother. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
