Made right before AND GOD CREATED WOMAN, this little comedy is no great shakes, except for the lively and vivacious Ms. Bardot who is charming as always. The guy who plays her brother is strangely bizarre and amusing. A pretty tame film (considering the title), the plot isn't worth discussing, but Brigitte is coy and beautiful.
A 5 out of 10. Best performance = Ms. Bardot. Her next film (GOD) would completely change her image from fun and innocent to passionate and a lasting sexual creature of the 50's. Roger Vadim, who wrote this one finally got to direct her and make a lasting impression. This film is enjoyable, but nothing to brag about.
