Arthur Hiller's

is a failed attempt to renew screw-ball comedy. It's not very funny, even less funny than Sex and the Single Girl made two years earlier with same Natalie Wood.

The sidekicks here are Ian Bannen, Dick Shawn, Peter Falk, Lila Kedrova, Lou Jacobi and Jonathan Winters.

E.V. Cunningham (Howard Fast) wrote the original novel, it is said.

Well, at least Natalie Wood is still adorable (but not most of her gowns, dresses and attire, except one Givenchy suit). And about Dick Shawn, you'll have to wait for Mel Brooks' The Producers/Springtime for Hitler to have him make you laugh to tears.

Molle comédie pas bien drôle, comme pas mal de celles — les exemples foisonnent — faites à Hollywood à l'époque, qui ne faisaient rire que les énormes placards publicitaires qui les vendaient à vos parents et grands-parents.

Mais Natalie Wood est encore en beauté, ici.
