Half-baked romantic comedy
26 August 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

Romantic comedies made in Germany's Nazi era often come across as strange hybrids, and this is no exception, or rather: a prime example. On the one hand we find signs of the wit and sophistication which Lubitsch, Wilder & Co. exported to Hollywood, including morals the Hayes code would certainly not have approved of, on the other it re-enforces sexual stereotypes to an extent that borders to political propaganda. Men can't cook or sew, women always want to get married, etc.

The plot idea is about a man asking a friend to watch over his wife, since she threatened to have an affair if he goes on a certain business trip (with his beautiful secretary). This idea has potential for lots of plot twists, but this potential is hardly touched and we find ourselves mostly watching situations that resemble TV sitcoms.

The cast make the best of this material, although the female lead (Lil Adina) is a bit of a let-down, giggling a lot throughout the second half of the film.
