Norman Krasna's screenplay, from his Broadway legiter, doesn't really get rolling until it has virtually marked time for almost an hour, but once it gets up this head of steam the entire complexion of the picture seems to change.
Let's just say that Peter Tewksbury's direction makes the whole thing move like clockwork on the screen, where it is done in delicious Metrocolor, and that, naturally, no one gets hurt.
It's a cute little story of mistaken identity, budding relationships and potential sexual awakening. It's cute, and it's not meant to be anything more.
Solid performances keep it entertaining, even if one does occasionally chuckle at the outdated discussions of sexual mores.
A fast, frantic, and sometimes funny sex comedy not unlike a thousand other sex comedies.
