      Renata Adler New York Times One of those peculiarly joyless, fumbling, dirty comedies that only Hollywood (and perhaps some small German filmmakers) would ever want to produce. Jan 8, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Ann P Came across this one morning and I ended up hooked! Silly, ornery, typical and just fun! I would watch it again. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Corny swingin' 60s sex comedy has uptight psychology professor David Niven trying to control his liberated free-spirit 17-year old daughter, Cristina Ferrare. It's really a generational comedy with the square adults having a hard time understanding 1960's youth culture. The main problems with this film isn't the premise, but that the comedy is not all that funny. Both the square adults and the hip kids are presented in broad exaggerated versions of themselves, which could work, but does not here. I did laugh at one of-the-moment line when Niven's character is angry at a doctor friend and yells, "I'm glad they passed Medicare!" but outside of that there was not much that made me laugh. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Sexist and SUBLIME. I own & adore this movie MYTH of 60s Kitsch, Psychology, Rebellion, Sexism and mirth. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Silly piece of fluff is rather inane but pleasantly performed by its talented cast. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member a so-so star vehicle for david niven Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Without David Niven, not worth your time. Also has, of all people Ozzie Nelson of the late fifties/early sixties TV show Ozzie and Harriet! Based on a hit Broadway play, oddly enough.

at the local university and is happily married to his wife Alice (Lola Albright). The couple has two teenage daughters, and the trouble begins when the oldest daughter Linda (Christina Ferrare) begins to take an adult interest in boys. Her misadventures corrupt her impressionable sister Abbey (Darlene Carr) and is driving the head of the university, Dean Rockwell (John Harding), absolutely crazy as he fears a scandal that could blight the school."-- NY Times SEE the opening 3 minutes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7IDThmJ-_E Some critics have called this the most stupid, most obscene G rated film of all. Niven plays a psychiatrist who's own sex craved daughter is beyond his help. Sounds like something I want to watch for sure!

But, like many 1960s sex comedies, nothing really untoward actually happens. It's a smoke and mirrors story with a good cast - including highly likable supporting[fifties-sixties] TV stars Chad Everett and Ozzie Nelson.
