It's a blithe, silly, good-natured movie and, of its kind, quite an enjoyable one.

The comedy was out of date before they even made this, no matter how much they try and twist the ending.

In the end, however, it's let down by one easy laugh too many.

Ultimately its refusal to tackle any real issues makes this a thoroughly bland American comedy.

This is a genuinely interesting idea, filled with dramatic possibilities, but the movie approaches it on the level of a dim-witted sit-com.
