Critic Review - Chicago Reader

I wouldn't call this 1960 picture one of Billy Wilder's best comedies -- it's drab, sappy, and overlong at 125 minutes.

Drab and sappy? We must have watched a different film. You wish you could act like Lemmon!

I note how you say 125 minutes to make it seem like it is longer than it is. all perspective. your point wouldn't have come across as strongly if you had said 2 hours 5 minutes. which is shorter than the average movie these days.
