Barely passable with a few cute moments
15 April 2011 | by (South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

My usual personal cutoff includes the year 1965 when watching classic films. I have been trying to watch as many Dean Martin, Deborah Kerr, and Frank Sinatra films as possible up to 1965, so this fit the bill. This movie, however, was quite a disappointment even with my low expectations from the ratings. It was so risqué compared to the classics I love from just a couple of years before. I felt like a prude at first. I really prefer classic films made between 1937-1959. This film is a great reminder as to why.

This actually could have been a great movie, but it was barely passable thanks to bad writing and unenthusiastic male leads. It had its cute moments but they were intermixed with babes in bikinis way too much. Also, the usually charming Sinatra played the heavy and he played it a bit too heavy. Dean was charming as always except when getting an oil rubdown. Sadly, then he just looked like a bit of a creepy old man. Kerr was not playing with her often Oscar caliber script, but I'm afraid she was just passing her prime for great parts. She did put in a valiant effort to her credit.

I liked the sweet and tidy ending, but it's still not a new personal favorite. The only thing that suffered was my expectations for what could have been a cute and funny fluff piece film had everyone just tried harder.
