One wonders whose idea it was to film Edward Chodorov's play? Nunnally Johnson, an otherwise good director, must have been under the influence when he agreed to direct this silly comedy.
The movie has a distinct 50's look. The story about a Manhattan shrink with a well-to-do clientele might have been funny on the stage, but as we watch it unfold on the screen it's just ridiculous. Even being kind about it, no one can say anything good about the movie, which, by the way, it's not even funny.
The only curious thing about "Oh Men, Oh Women" is that it was Tony Randall's film debut. A great cast is totally wasted. Dan Dailey, Ginger Rogers, David Niven and Barbara Rush might have looked good to the casting department, but in the film they are mired by a screen play that goes nowhere. Also in the film is the delightful Natalie Schafer, a stage actress that made it big in television in the series "Gilligan's Island".
If you have nothing to do, read a book, but don't waste your time with this stinker.
