A star vehicle for Shirley MacLaine, Thompson's film is a tediously episodic black comedy about a wealthy widow and her five husbands; Newman, Mitchum, and Martin are all wasted.

J. Lee Thompson's direction has failed to coalesce a good, firm farce. It lets the whole thing flap wildly -- and that's no way to make a film.

A big, gaudy, gimmicky comedy which continually promises more than it delivers by way of wit and/or bellylaffs.

An unappealing episodic black comedy that gets stuck in its own silliness.
