As usual in this type of farce, male and female leads have fewer comic lines than supporting players. But Curtis registers exceptionally well when detailing supposed marital problems to adviser.

Graceless stuff, criminally wasting Bacall and Fonda as a couple with marital problems (they're in love, but constantly quarrelling), and with Quine's moderate flair for comedy nowhere in evidence.

Spain never looked lovelier, but the banal romances of the lightweight principals in this retooled vehicle make the trip wholly unnecessary.

In a small role as a production man, note Wayne, who appears as Benjamin Franklin in a superb one-man show around the world. Storch also turns in a neat cameo as a motorcycle cop.

1964 sexual revolution fodder, with some slapstick for redemption.

Audience Reviews for Sex and the Single Girl

"I feel just like Jack Lemmon did in that movie where he dressed up like a girl."
HAH!! Perhaps it's because Tony Curtis references one of my favorite movies, I do love this movie. (However, in no way does Tony Curtis look like Jack Lemmon...)
Anyway, it was weird, it was funny, it was sweet, it was strange, it had the best car chase seen ever. I LOVED IT! I'd watch this again in a heart beat.

    1. Dr. Helen Brown: I have a-a - metabolism thing and I, uh, get drunk very easily.
    2. Bob Weston: Well I was reading a medical journal just the other day where it says that if you take a drink, and take it down in one gulp, it bypasses the metabolism.
