Movie Info

Bob Weston (Tony Curtis) is a tabloid magazine writer looking to score an interview with Helen Gurley Brown (Natalie Wood), a young and beautiful research psychologist who recently authored the best-selling women's advice guide "Sex and the Single Girl." Helen refuses the interview, so Bob impersonates one of her neighbors, Frank (Henry Fonda), in order to meet with her. Eventually, the two fall in love -- which forces Bob into a struggle to cover his trail of lies.

Critic Reviews for Sex and the Single Girl

  • As usual in this type of farce, male and female leads have fewer comic lines than supporting players. But Curtis registers exceptionally well when detailing supposed marital problems to adviser.

  • Graceless stuff, criminally wasting Bacall and Fonda as a couple with marital problems (they're in love, but constantly quarrelling), and with Quine's moderate flair for comedy nowhere in evidence.

    Top Critic
  • Spain never looked lovelier, but the banal romances of the lightweight principals in this retooled vehicle make the trip wholly unnecessary.

    May 9, 2005 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • ...an agreeably lighthearted setup that is, for the most part, employed to sluggish and underwhelming effect by Richard Quine...

  • In a small role as a production man, note Wayne, who appears as Benjamin Franklin in a superb one-man show around the world. Storch also turns in a neat cameo as a motorcycle cop.

    May 27, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 1964 sexual revolution fodder, with some slapstick for redemption.

    "I feel just like Jack Lemmon did in that movie where he dressed up like a girl." HAH!! Perhaps it's because Tony Curtis references one of my favorite movies, I do love this movie. (However, in no way does Tony Curtis look like Jack Lemmon...) Anyway, it was weird, it was funny, it was sweet, it was strange, it had the best car chase seen ever. I LOVED IT! I'd watch this again in a heart beat.
