Wild-eyed (but still G-rated) bachelor escapades...
17 December 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Tony Curtis/Jerry Lewis combination adapted from a play by Marc Camoletti about an American in Paris who is juggling the affections of different sexy stewardesses. Bedroom-comedy isn't smutty, but neither is it particularly witty or funny. The slapstick staging isn't spirited, yet the players react crazily, hoping to sell this fluff on their hearty attempts alone. Perky Dany Saval (as "Air France") is the stand-out amongst the lovely ladies, none of whom gets an actual character to play. Curtis and Lewis might have been an interesting duo under better circumstances (and with snappier dialogue), but this material is beneath them. *1/2 from ****
