O'Toole and Hepburn make a great comedy team, they should have been in more movies together. This movie is hilarious and very fun, I really liked it.

This film is sheer brilliance! It was funny, well-acted, great and tremendously clever story! I totally loved it from start to finish! Even the stealing work was very clever and funny! Especially the twists at the end!
