Though Kiss Me, Stupid has the structure and comic beats of a classic bedroom farce, it's an overwhelmingly cynical assessment of male jealousy and exploitation.

Sprinkling in bad jokes and Rat Pack references, Dean Martin's comic timing and delivery is impeccable -- as he parodies and deconstructs his image as a notorious lover and drunk.

Characteristically cynical, clever and brash, it's helped out enormously by the performances of Martin, Farr and (particularly) Novak...

What separates 'Stupid' from so many of the so-called 'sex comedies' of the period is its combination of cynicism and directness. Beneath the teasing and the titillation there are some genuinely provocative themes...

Novak is surprisingly affecting as the whore who is determined to make something of herself.

Undeniably lewd, Kiss Me, Stupid exemplifies the go-go Rat Pack sexual sensibilities that fed the American appetite in the dawn of the sexual revolution.

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.
January 1, 2000
There was the sharp contrast of surface-banter and concentration on detail; of unpredictable laughter, brushed off by disciplined professionalism.

In any event, this has to rank as Wilder's most corrosive and despairing portrait of America.
January 1, 2000
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.
April 16, 2013
Being a HUGE Wilder fan, I can honestly say that this was a HUGE disappointment. I'd rather watch this than say, BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 2, but I expected something much better from a director as talented as Wilder.

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...
November 24, 2006
Whatever ambitions this romantic comedy might have had, they were never realized.
