Both panned and praised when it was released, this zany cross-continental romp zooms ahead full throttle for all of its 157 minutes.

Lemmon plays it dirty throughout and for huge effect. Curtis underplays for equally comic effect. Wood comes through on a par with the two male stars.

...a boisterous, madcap chase film that overstays its welcome but provides enough laughs along the way to make up for its shortcomings.

It's highly inventive, self-conscious camp, made in 1965, well before the genre wore itself out in superciliousness.

A monumentally epic disaster...

This is one of those spectacular comedy star vehicles which is perfectly watchable on a wet Sunday afternoon but which, looked at from almost any other perspective, is just a waste of celluloid.
