Storyline

American playboy Bernard Lawrence has cleverly designed a system using the airline timetables to keep going three affairs with flight stewardesses.

Trivia

A dispute over which actor--Tony Curtis or Jerry Lewis-- would receive top billing was settled in print ads and posters by criss-crossing names on a diagonal so a portion of each stars' name on top line appeared on top line (first name for one, surname for the other--with remainder of name on bottom line in reversed order.) In trailer, both names flash on screen in animated circle rotating so rapidly it's impossible to discern top-billed star. See more »

Jerry Lewis plays it straight to Tony Curtis.
17 March 1999 | by (Lucas Buck, NC) – See all my reviews

When the opening credits run, and the supporting female cast members ‘measurements' are shown beneath their names, you have no doubt you're in the 60's, bedroom farce, defined. In a role reversal of sorts Jerry Lewis plays straight man to Tony Curtis this time around .

Bernie Lawrence (Curtis) is an American newspaper man stationed in Paris, the man for whom there is never too many airline hostesses, just too little time. His delicately balanced, and timed to the minute, 4-way love life comes totally unwound when old pal Robert Reed (Lewis) arrives for an unexpected stay.

Cliché after cliché, time stamped in most every shot, Boeing Boeing is a tribute to a different type of filmmaking than we see today, a different morality, a different approach to comedy.

Wonderful Paris sights are an added treat. Recommended.
