Audience Reviews for All In A Night's Work
This comedy starts well but lags before the finals. It was and still remains a very funny film with Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine giving some good performances.

Okay comedy, starts off charmingly but loses steam along the way. Excellent cast have all been in better films, it does have a nice studio sheen though with some great 60 style sets.More
