Part romantic triangle, part Capra-esque hokum, all coast on star power.

Goatdog's Movies

In addition to its status as one of the great screen comedies, the film is a treasure trove of homosexual undercurrents, many of which aren't all that disguised.

Overblown, too long, and not nearly as much fun as it's cracked up to be.

It may be off beam in its philosophy, but its quality of humor is not strained.

Though verbose, this darkly humorous film benefits from star power of Cary Grant in atypical role, some witty dialogue, and timely subject matter.

Effective, if peculiar, mixture of screwball comedy and political moralising.
