Critic Reviews for Kiss Me, Stupid
Wilder, usually a director of considerable flair and inventiveness -- has not been able this time out to rise above a basically vulgar, as well as creatively delinquent, screenplay...
Characteristically cynical, clever and brash, it's helped out enormously by the performances of Martin, Farr and (particularly) Novak...
I recommend Kiss Me, Stupid to the skeptical with no reservations whatsoever.
Kiss Me, Stupid is unlikely to inspire a Broadway musical, top an AFI poll, or birth a hundred-dollar coffee-table book, but it could burnish Wilder's posthumous reputation.
Both Martin and Novak are at their near best, and the undertone of small-town desperation in Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond's script is effectively captured by Walston and his sidekick, Cliff Osmond.
Audience Reviews for Kiss Me, Stupid
Laughs and nostalgia intertwine beautifully in Wilder's explorations of American values and culture. Prostitution, pimping and wife swapping are decorously wrapped in a sweet and cunning manner. The viennese genius never ceases to amaze me.
Coarse, leeing and jejune this borderline idiotic enterprise is unbelievably the joint effort of the usually sterling team of Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond who were WAY off their game here. Cast of fine actors are directed to make fools of themselves with Ray Walston's character being particularly infantile. A notorious flop in it's day whatever Wilder, a master of dark satire, is trying to portray or lampoon in this vulgar mess is hard to ascertain. A miss.
A funny flick from Wilder, but it's not one of his best, the story is pretty average. It's pretty good, and sometimes pretty funny, but it could be better.
