Silly rom-com, that dishes out its comedy in an aggressive NYC style.

Audience Reviews for Just Tell Me What You Want


Fun comedy that has surprisingly good performances from Alan King and Ali MacGraw perhaps her best ever, which isn't setting the bar too high of course but she really is okay here. Myrna Loy offers excellent support as usual, this was her last theatrical feature and it's a much better role and picture than a lot of classic actresses had a chance to exit in.
