Silly rom-com, that dishes out its comedy in an aggressive NYC style.

Audience Reviews for Just Tell Me What You Want

½

Ali MacGraw following Alan King into a New York department store--Bergdorf Goodman--and beating him with her purse. What other opening scene in a movie is as funny as this? And it gets better. Dina Merrill is funny too in a couple of scene-stealing efforts--she's always just about to shatter.

Fun comedy that has surprisingly good performances from Alan King and Ali MacGraw perhaps her best ever, which isn't setting the bar too high of course but she really is okay here. Myrna Loy offers excellent support as usual, this was her last theatrical feature and it's a much better role and picture than a lot of classic actresses had a chance to exit in.
