Irma also misses on several important counts, and the fact that it does illustrates the sizable problems inherent in an attempt to convert a legit musical into a tuneless motion picture farce.
A good example of how a movie can be utterly characteristic of its maker and still fall with a resounding thud...
Wilder's soft-centred cynicism provides frequent enough laughs without too many longueurs.
Mr. Lemmon is little short of brilliant...
Though Irma's 143-minute length is more than a little too much of a very good thing, it's hard to dislike a movie that keeps giving you more good stuff.
Lemmon and Maclaine fail to reproduce the chemistry from The Apartment but this slight film is not as ignorable as reputation suggests.
One of Billy Wilder's lesser films, Irma La Douce relies entirely on its two stars, Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine, neither of whom is particularly good or funny, despite the masks and the accents.
Wilder somehow sustains the lively pace and humor for the two-and-a-half hour color comedy.
Just great fun.
The movie was filmed on a 360-degree set so shooting could be done in any direction.
Wonderful story, stars (Lemmon & MacLaine), director (WIlder). And what a great Previn score.
Though the saucy French soufflé has a few tasty moments it mostly sinks into being tasteless fare.
Wilder, Lemmon and MacLaine team up again after their collaboration in The Apartment to offer us a funny and audacious farce that works well enough despite being a bit overlong and clumsy in parts, especially as it becomes more and more contrived towards the end.
"the apartment" with a bigger budget and less of a point, Wilder reteams lemmon and Maclaine in essentially the same roles, under different, lighter circumstances and a Parisian locale. it's not bad, per se, only light entertainment. Network television used to run the film every year.
This is a fun film, but it doesn't near comparison to wilder's work with the two stars in 'the apartment." ...but no one said that it should.
This is another really funny movie from WIlder, and starring the great Jack Lemmon. The story isn't new, and it's predictable sometimes, but that doesn't make the movie an less funny.
