Immaculate execution in every detail of one poor conception after another... uninspired, arrogant, and lazy.

If this wearying exercise in camp, rib-nudging double entendres, rhyming gollyspeak and groovy-daddio! set design wrapped around a wan murder mystery sounds like an Annette Funicello movie gone to hell, it at least succeeds on one level.

A promising recipe for comedy that goes flat in the execution.

Awkward combination of garish set decoration and muffled humor.
August 1, 2003
It's all enjoyable enough, but it's played so broadly that it loses whatever impact it might have had.

Saddled with both a script and direction that never comes near the wit or cleverness in Busch's own performance.

It's too much filmed theater to come alive fully on the screen.

Has a great look, but its broad laughs at the expense of '50s and '60s cultural naivete aren't really all that clever.

It definitively skewers the false innocence of American pop culture on the eve of the countercultural deluge.

PBP made a smooth transition from stage to screen; I suppose since the play was mocking movies, making a movie of it was a more logical use of the script.

The sort of movie that even today's superstars might love to slum around in.
