Not THAT bad
8 November 2007 | by (Montana) – See all my reviews

Could this be the first film depiction of paparazzi? Sure, it initially might appear to be a strip of tripe. But don't we all have to admit, that's a very good foreshadowing of Marty Feldman smoking the hookah pipe at the hotel register? And Hope's drag acting was also to be seen again in "Some Like It Hot" etc. Let's also take note of the cultural difference between eastern and western treatment of wives. Other than that, yes, I suppose one could label it as terribly flawed and cliché-ridden. But don't forget, there was the Great Depression going on, and the country needed every laugh it could get. I applaud this film for the reason that is was, indeed, an additional boost for not only the US, but for the whole world.
