The screenplay, based on a one-act play by Ferenc Molnar, is outstanding.

It would be better to watch this alone as the sound of chuckling in a theater will drown out many of the clever lines.

The pace is blistering, and Wilder's deep-seated hatred of Germans has never been put to more comic use.

The targets of Wilder's satire--a vulgar American capitalist culture and an outdated Russian Communist culture--are too obvious to be that funny.

Marvellous one-liners, of course, and Cagney, spitting out his lines with machine-gun rapidity...

One, Two, Three celebrates as it satirizes American cultural imperialism.

Wilder crafted what may well be his funniest movie with One, Two, Three. It's certainly his fastest-paced film.

A frantic satire from Wilder, this is a manic and hilariously funny ride into the madness of the cold war.

The last hour of the film is an exhilarating, exhausting series of gags, chases and twists that will have you glued to your TV.

Fast and funny, but very stagey, satire of Cold War politics.

This Cold War comedy may not be either Billy Wilder's or James Cagney's subtlest work, but it's an energetic and sometimes unsettling exercise in brash bad taste.

It is one with which you can laugh -- with its own impudence toward foreign crises -- while laughing at its rowdy spinning jokes.
