Audience Reviews for It Started With a Kiss

½

The most exciting thing about the touristy breezy romcom is an experimental 1955 Lincoln Futura, the concept car that was the future model for the Batmobile.

It may have started with a Kiss, But it's the Exotic Car he won (she sold him the Ticket, that's how they met) that causes all the trouble & provides all the fun.Can't help but think it should be somewhere in the title.She(Debbie Reynolds) is a wanna be Gold Digger & Showgirl, He(Glen Ford) is on an Air force Sergeants Salary.They impulsively marry after the Chemistry of the 1st Date Kiss.He is assigned to Spain & goes on ahead.In the mean time he wins an exotic $40,000 car which is against Air Force regulations to have any showy possessions , she brings it to Spain with her, which causes Air Force issues, IRS issues,& Marital Issues(Celibacy). The Car makes them Celebrities & the toast of Spain & they are invited to Bull Fights, Events, they Hob Nob with the Marquesa de la Rey(Eva Gabor), & Famous Bullfighter Antonio Sorano(Gustavo Rojo) both of whom have attractions to their new spouses.Lots of Frolic & Shenanigans in this absolutely Delightful Film

Cute romantic comedy, typical of its era. It's not particularly memorable (except for that car!), but it entertains along the way. Glenn Ford and Debbie Reynolds have a good rapport together. Good production, fine supporting cast.
