this film is both funny and enjoyable and annoying and stupid.
another good film due to great casting and a dedicated crew.
Although this movie is at times funny and enjoyable, it is at other times annoying and stupid. It's got a good cast, though. It's just not all that interesting, the charm wears thin. Overall it's an okay movie, not good, but not bad.
Just when I was thinking this was fairly restrained for a Tashlin film, the movie cut to a towel-clad woman eating a huge wedge of cake on a vibrating bed. Best part: Tuesday Weld's character's inexplicable decision that the best way to get her future stepfather to let her stay in his house is not to actually explain who she is, but instead to adopt a pseudo-Judy-Holliday tough girl voice and concoct a backstory about escaping from reform school. Which makes perfect sense, assuming you've seen "Kitten with a Whip", although this actually predates that. Best quote: random woman throwing herself at the Professor growls, "Do it where the lipstick is!"
OK, the story, tripping from one misunderstanding to another, isn't the best, and I just can't buy Terry-Thomas as a girl magnet, but it's a CinemaScope Frank Tashlin picture. Tashlin is a master of color and wide screen movies. It's worth seeing, but only wide screen. If it's cropped don't bother.
