Reflective of the time period, and its comedy style of film-making, 8 January 2005
Author: Ripshin from North Carolina

Beautiful locations, beautiful people, beautiful cinematography and glossy direction, combine with a pedestrian script to create a satisfactory viewing experience.

Rock is Rock, and Gina is Gina, and the two manage to spice up an extremely predictable storyline. The dialogue adheres closely to basic early 60s comedy requirements. Cute and polite sexuality is tossed into a situation driven by confusion that could easily be avoided if characters would simply ask the logical questions.

Darren and Dee surprisingly have little chemistry, considering this is the film that began their real-life relationship.

Minor complaint.......the final shot telegraphed its conclusion the minute the happy couple drove up to the villa. I said to myself, there are going to be ________ at the table, and sure enough, I was correct.

The casting of the college kids is bland, I suppose in order not to overshadow Darren and Dee.
