This is a harmless screwball comedy, mostly fast-paced, always amusing, but never laugh-out-loud funny. The striptease is a tiny and almost incidental part of the film, and Mlle Bardot never undresses on camera. A damn shame. But she really could act, and is better than the rest of the deservedly unknown cast. Maybe that is why they were chosen, so as not to upstage the luminously beautiful star.
