Looked at from a modern perspective this film is horrendously sexist and there is cause for about a half dozen sexual harassment suits within the first fifteen minutes of the movie. But if looked at as a product of its time it's a bright fluffy colorful comedy with a stunning Ann-Margret and for anyone who is a fan of fashion a real eye candy treat. The film is loaded with high fashion sixties designs and has a fashion show smack dab in the middle.
There is also a very fun number of You've Got To See Mama Ev'ry Night (Or You Can't See Mama At All) performed by A-M and a dolled up Reta Shaw. A nice surprise for Miss Shaw's fans since she usually was cast as maids and crotchety spinster ladies, it's great to see her frisky and animated singing a spirited version of the tune.
As for the actual plot of the picture it boils down to sensible girl gets a chance to go to Paris and make a big impression at work but ends up turning into a dithery fool whose head is turned every which way by various men.
