"In America, sex never Denmark, it changes!"
3 May 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Exceedingly thin comedy from screenwriter William Peter Blatty (paying the bills) about a cheesecake filmmaker in Greenwich Village under duress from his mail-order distributor to spice up the action; his new neighbor is a young French widow with a rambunctious son...and a shapely behind! Tepid picture from talents seen to better advantage elsewhere. Warren Beatty looks flustered and performs listlessly, while Leslie Caron is all spunky externals and no depth. The entire plot is laid out for us in the first fifteen minutes, with possible competition for Beatty being Robert Cummings, he of the sexless manner and mannequin's grin. You know you're in for it when the opening montage consists of a toddler wreaking 'comic' chaos in a jewelery store, playing peek-a-boo for the camera while reacting to animated credits hovering about his head. *1/2 from ****
