Quotes

Michel Boullard: Monsieur, a father with a daughter who is a thirty year old spinster... do you know what it means?
Paul Chadwick: Yeah, it means that any able-bodied man who can run, walk or crawl should avoid you
Michel Boullard: Of course, when a daughter posseses a certain innocence at eighteen, for a father it's a joy to behold. When she's twenty-one, you're still happy but, er, thoughtful. When she's twenty-five, you are no longer smiling...
Paul Chadwick: ...It's getting grim

Innocent fun
15 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of many ROCK HUDSON sex comedies made in the 60's. It's all talk and no do, like the others. Pure formula from start to finish with Rock hired to "teach" the Leslie Caron character about life in the bedroom. Some funny moments and Caron is delicious, but bogs down toward the end and becomes to contrived for its own good. Look for some familiar character actors such as Dick Shawn as a nerdy fiancé' Larry Storch as a cab driver and George Furth in a barroom scene. The always excellent Nita Talbot has a nice role as one of Mr. Hudsons many man hungry females. For a nice confection, it's worth a view. Now on DVD with HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY GAL.
