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.
It's highly inventive, self-conscious camp, made in 1965, well before the genre wore itself out in superciliousness.
A monumentally epic disaster...
Comedy masterpiece, and one of the few films to look at votes for women.
Perfect family movie is fun from beginning to end.
Laughs aplenty! Lemmon is hilarious!
Both panned and praised when it was released, this zany cross-continental romp zooms ahead full throttle for all of its 157 minutes.
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.
Not a great film but one with some funny moments and line of stars.
Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk save this overblown comedy that tries too hard to be too slapstick.
Everything a farce should be, played straight while being seriously silly.
Goofy and overblown, but still hard to resist.
The film does drag on somewhat slowly, it makes up for it for one lone reason and one lone reason only, JACK LEMMON AS PROFESSOR FATE!!! He is so damn funny to watch, and I think the comedy on how he acts comes from the Looney Tunes, particularly Daffy Duck, who I am inspired by quite a bit as well, and it really works with the comedy on this character, and is hysterical. The only thing I disliked about this film was Tony Curtis, mainly because how wooden he acts in this film, but I think it was intentional, I think he was trying to just act like that because he is just a stereotypical attractive dude that is just a character with no attitude or emotion., But Jack Lemmon works off of him so hysterically well, and he is someone who you just want to actually see win and not Tony Curtis.
The fun of this tribute (of sorts) to the old silent films is watching the cast simply live it up. Curtis gets to hero it, Wood gets to sexy all American girl it, and Lemmon and the recently deceased Falk get to revel as the very bad guy and his untrustworthy assistant it. Plenty of shining moments by supporting actors in what is without a doubt one deliberately silly film, yes, but fun.
I didn't know it was a kids movie when I started, but I really, really liked it. Why? Because Jack Lemmon is a comic genius and made me crack up more than I was ever expecting. Parallel only to the ever charming Natalie Woods and the oddly suave Tony Curtis.
It was a bit long, but the comedy and hijinks were so crazy that I didn't mind it! This is something that if I ever had kids, would have them watch. Loved it. And I would totally watch this again.
Oh, and greatest pie fight EVER.
This race isn't that great, it's predictable and has a lot of stupid jokes. There are some good actors in it, though. Overall, it's okay.
