Silly comedy of straight laced Lemmon having to pose the husband of sexy neighbor Romy Schneider to help her inherit millions. It's a silly door slamming sex comedy, but the fun cast elevates the trite material.
This marital satire doesn't have quite the spark of a Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie, but it's still enjoyable for a rainy afternoon. Jack Lemmon made a whole string of light comedies in the 60's and this is definitely one of the better ones.
I kept wanting to stop it and then something amusing would happen and keep me interested....very dated of course ...the ending looks like they just ran out of time and threw something together....but its saved by Lemmon really is good fun to watch...
