Martin's trademark wacky humor is fitfully in evidence, but seems much more repressed than usual in order to fit into the relatively realistic world of single working people.

A mindless comedy that's about as funny as a life sentence in solitary confinement.

The kind of movie that seems to have been made to play in empty theaters on overcast January afternoons.

It tries a little bit of everything, and winds up with an air of messy desperation.

Alternando o besteirol e a comédia de situações, o filme é consistentemente engraçado e surpreendentemente sensível. Um dos melhores da carreira de Steve Martin.
| Original Score: 5/5

The least satisfying of Steve Martin's early movies.

Martin and pathos just don't mix.

Very funny, early Steve Martin comedy. Has some great bits including a gag with spary-on sweat and another with cardboard stand-ups doubling as friends for lonely guys. Not Martin's funniest film, but it's up there.

Arthur Hiller's direction exudes a flavorless professionalism, a quality that doesn't count for much in this context.
