  1. 75
    Casting can be the reason that one movie works and another doesn't. It is the first reason for the success of The Girl From Monaco, the kind of romantic comedy with a twist that used to star Jack Lemmon.
  2. A notable, worthwhile picture.
  3. 70
    The murder trial and the possibility of a real attack on the attorney nicely offset the sexual gamesmanship, though the movie is badly compromised by a final left turn into serious drama and plot machination. Up until that point, it's an uncommonly shrewd and funny farce.
  4. 58
    Isn't slow-paced. It’s slick and audience-friendly.
  5. 50
    The modest pleasure of the film issues chiefly from the performances.
  6. 50
    May be momentarily entertaining, but don't expect anything profound from the lightweight saga.
  7. 30
    Zem and Bourgoin are great, but the movie is too frivolous to win anything but a dismissal in the court of moviegoer opinion.
