Typical, 60s Hope pablum, made interesting by location filming
This flick is sixties suburbia to pastel perfection - an "early Disneyland" middle-class wet dream.
Frankly, I've never understood Bob Hope as a sex-comedy leading man, but his later films must have made money, or they wouldn't have kept churning them out. Lana Turner is coiffed to within an inch of her life, but she honestly looks OLDER than her forty years in 1961.
Watch this for the "California coral" tract homes, the fab supermarket and the atomic drive-in we all wish still existed. However, don't expect anything more than the usual, lame Hope shtick.
Of course, Agnes Moorehead is priceless in her cameo......if only she had played a larger role.
