Less than successful, veering from poignant emotionalism to broad slapstick in sudden shifts.

Means middle-class angst covered with a thin veneer of snappy one-liners and presented in the most anonymous directorial style imaginable.

Quick and varied comedy, highly suited to Neil Simon's machine-gun gag-writing.
