Storyline

British industrialist Sir William Rutland - "Bill" to his friends - is in Tokyo on a business trip during the time of the Summer Olympic Games there in 1964. Having actually arrived in Tokyo two days before his original planned arrival, he has problems finding a hotel room because of the Olympics. Spotting an ad posted on a British Embassy message board of a room available to sublet, Bill is able to wrangle his way into the apartment of Christine Easton, who is renting out the sitting room of her one-bedroom apartment as a bedroom for the duration of the Olympics. Bill's short-term living situation in Christine's sitting room is despite her solely wanting a female roommate. Soon thereafter, Bill meets Steve Davis, an athlete with the American Olympic team who seems to be reluctant to disclose in which event he is competing. Like Bill, Steve has arrived in Tokyo two days early of his scheduled arrival, has nowhere to stay for those two days, and without Christine's knowledge also ... Written by Huggo

Running jokes, a slapstick ballet, and Cary Grant playing matchmaker...
18 October 2005 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

American heel-to-toe competitor in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics cajoles his way into a flat occupied by an attractive working girl and her "roommate", a chipper British corporate executive who couldn't find other lodgings in over-crowded Japan. After a swift, bouncy start, this lackluster comedy seems to lose inspiration quickly, mostly due to the initial set-up compromised by the arrival of the American dullard (Jim Hutton, pulling a Dean Jones). The film is a remake of a 1943 picture ("The More The Merrier"), and sadly it plays like 1943 as well. There is so much lovely chemistry and interplay between Cary Grant and Samantha Eggar in the early scenes, this might've been a totally different (and improved) movie if played as a duet. But once the boy moves in, and the girl's fiancé gets jealous, and the kids are accused of being spies...well, it's not half as bad as Grant being forced into the third-wheel position, playing Fairy Godfather. Quincy Jones provided a nice score, and a few of the running gags are cute, but otherwise this is very tired work. No wonder Grant retired from movies immediately afterward. ** from ****
