It's all mindless, absurdly complex and hopelessly hip in that 1960s sort of way, but an agreeable way to pass the time with gorgeous Sophia.

The cinematic busywork offers sporadic fun, but also suggests the unsteady posture of a show that always seems about to fall flat on its pretty face.

Arabesque packs the names of Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren and a foreign intrigue theme, but doesn't always progress on a true entertainment course.

Much flashier than Donen's earlier Charade (also scripted by Peter Stone, alias Pierre Marton) and very sub-Hitchcock.

Dated espionage farce sabotaged by elderly stars and witless jokes

About 10 minutes after Arabesque gets under way, you'll lose track of its plot completely, and that's as it should be.

If you don't mind that the plot not only doesn't matter but doesn't make much sense, you will be rewarded with a very entertaining film.
