    This play should probably stick to the theatre. Either that or they could have used a different director. This movie is very predictable on top of feeling like a play and how stupid everything the characters did seemed. Sometimes I found a bit of fun in a scene, and I thought Perkins and Morse were real cute, but other than that, this is pretty dull. If you really like romantic comedies, you may enjoy this more than I did, though.

    Meh, It was interesting in one sense, but I was bored during most of the characters monologues.

    Shirley Maclaine has solidified her role as my favorite 60s cutie. This is an adorable movie that knows how adorable it is, what with the audience narration and everything. Charm doesn't make the story any more dimensional, however, and I don't think Anthony Perkins will ever shake the typecast of creeper off him after Psycho.

    It was cute. We rented it because we had seen the play at a local theater (not the musical). It wasn't as good as the play. I think it makes more sense when the characters talk to the audience in a play than when they do it in a movie.
