This is supposed to be snappy material, and it comes across gloomy.

There's little (if anything) to recommend this movie.

The gin rummy game with Griffith and Goodman instead of Holliday and Crawford is enough to ruin a night out.

Where Holliday was always too sophisticated a butterfly right from the off, Griffith's copycat performance starts dumb -- but then never takes wing.

There's no sense of screwball mayhem in the picture, no topsy-turvy brightness.

To the growing list of unnecessary movies, add this remake of the Garson Kanin comedy.

In old Hollywood, style could make up for a lack of substance, but this remake is without either.

There is a fatal disconnection between place and characters who, conceived in one era, are crazily transported into another in which they don't quite fit.

In this pointless remake, essaying the Judy Holliday Oscar-winning role, Melanie Griffith gives a poor performance, marked by monotonous delivery and tiresome semi-spunky routines.

Griffith almost makes it watchable. She is as charismatic a camera presence as ever, but her magic is mostly muted in this flat retread.

Much more enjoyable than you'd think. Griffith and Johnson sizzle.
