  • The script's few good ideas are soon flogged to death, although it all becomes interestingly tasteless towards the end.

  • Nobody demands probability from a farce, but this one keeps its hapless actors so busy explaining what is going on that they have no time to stay for laughs.

  • On the back lot at Universal City, Love creates a cardboard Paris and fills it with evidence that 1965 is a dull year abroad.

  • Complications arise when Van Dyke returns and discovers Garner's scam. He is not impressed. Neither will you be.

  • Good cast handles the material well but the film is so bloated with lunacy that it is hard to keep up with.
