No chemistry between the stars
tomreynolds2004 from Washington DC
29 March 2004
This film did well at the box office, and the producers of this mess
the stars had such good chemistry in this that they cast them in the much
darker screwball farce, The Gazebo. Frankly, I am shocked to see all the
positive comments on this ludicrously plotted unfunny comedy. Both lead
characters have the maturity of seven-year-olds and are much less
interesting to spend time with. A veteran supporting cast including Fred
Clark, Harry Morgan, and Eva Gabor lend excellent support. And, the
beautiful cinematography certainly makes the rich countryside of Spain
lush. And, there are four or five truly funny scenes to go with two wise
scenes and a whole bunch of recycled and unfunny clutter.
I cannot recommend It Started With A Kiss.
I saw this film with my parents at a drive-in in 1959, and I was
mesmerized by the fabulous Lincoln Futura, the best of the 1950s "dream
As a devoted sci-fi fan, this car was the very essence of the "future".
The Futura implied predictions of a future similar to those presented
in movies like "Forbidden Planet". It was an example of the kind of
superior technological design which I eagerly anticipated in the
decades to come.
Predictions like this were why I loved to watch Disney shows like "Mars
and Beyond", "Tomorrow the Moon", and "Magic Highway USA".
