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.

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.

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.

An amiable comedy full of chase, chase, fall-down, chase.

...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.
