    A grave screwball comedy. Its gags aren't just hilarious -- they have a weighty, plaintive soul.

    A smooth little comedy deserving of more studio support than it got.

    Can't stars attract better scripts than this?
  6. Blakeney's script contains more hackneyed dialogue and misfired jokes per minute than would seem possible, and the result embarrasses every actor in it.
  7. A half hour in and still, the plot, tone, and setting are incomprehensible.
