'Boojum' is a term coined by Lewis Carroll, and first appears in his poem, "The Hunting of the Snark". The 'Snark' (SM-62) was a surface-to-surface missile (a large cruise missile) used by the US military. Given the presence of a missile base in the film, it is likely that the term, 'Boojum', was used to make the connection with the real missile. See more »

I read the reviews before watching it again after many years. Shocked, I was, to see that they weren't good. My plan was to see the movie and mount a spirited defense of it on this very site.
I can't. I like romantic comedies. I like comedies from this era. I even like bad movies if they are sincere. This movie just makes me uncomfortable.
Paul Newman, never one of my favorites, but a pretty decent actor, has no real range or depth in this role. I watched, expecting him to suddenly step forward and take charge of the movie, but he disappointed me...
Joanne Woodward vacillates between stern wife and mother/retarded blonde. I think she was trying to be sexy, but came off as possibly addicted to Valium...
Joan Collins was the one bright spot in this movie. She was sexy and vivacious...even funny from time to time...
Gale Gordon (Mr. Mooney from the old Lucy Show) did okay with what he had.
What they managed to do with some pretty talented actors was to create a movie where not only did I not care about the lives of any of the characters, I don't think I would've cared if any of them had been tortured to death, either.
