A disappointing dated and flat romantic comedy from the 1950s.
...makes a convenient time capsule for the fifties, and at its best it's an amusing romp.
Would-be-hip look at a swinging single in NYC
So incredibly terrible, and Debbie Reynolds knew it. Julie, her naïve husband-chaser of a character, was and perhaps is a reality and a trope, but does she have to be so devoid of personality otherwise? What is love, and why does Charlie even fall in love with her? There's no charm to their dated courtship at all, and it's a waste of Debbie's singing and dancing talents.
The bouquet passing bit at the end is cute, and the movie makes interesting enough insights into Martian and Venusian conflicts with Charlie's reforming rover, Joe's disillusioned family man, and Sylvia's career dame with a ticking marriage clock (played by the serene Celeste Holm), but the injection of a petty, needy, indecisive stereotype just sets gender politics back fifty years...not to mention screenwriting.
Pleasant but unspectacular comedy, Celeste Holm and David Wayne are wonderful and Sinatra is fine but Debbie's character is annoying and someone who anyone with any sense would run away from quickly.
