George Axelrod's script for How to Murder Your Wife isn't politically correct in the least, but you're likely to get a charge out of it -- provided you are of the male persuasion, that is.

A nimble comedy that doesn't make much sense because it makes nonsense, most of it screechingly funny and played by knockabouts who know that the slapstick was invented for keeping an idea aloft, not for beating it into the ground.
Finesse and desire aren't enough to overcome the fact that Axelrod's script doesn't make the most of its potentially antic situations.
Believable or not, this stuff is funny just so long as one can go with the sour joke- -and that depends upon one's tolerance of trivia and also, perhaps, upon whether one is a fellow or a girl.
Lemmon está ótimo como sempre, e Lisi é belíssima, mas o fraco roteiro e a ridícula conclusão comprometem o filme irremediavelmente.
Superior 60s sex comedy.
