Critic Review - Variety

A too-broad comedy, mostly due to the poor performance of Michael Caine.

I would criticize this review, but it was written in 1975 before they knew any better.

It was posted in 2008. The review itself is from 1975.
Either way, yes, Variety is way off.

This review must have been written by some "been-nowhere", "done-nothing", 20-something with a penchant for criticism and film school idiocy. This is a film. It's not meant to bring enlightenment, elevate you to a higher plain or even lower your cholesterol. Buy some pop-corn and a soda and enjoy the film for what it is; 90 minutes of suspended disbelief and a lot of fun. Oh, and stop taking yourself so seriously, no one else is...
