The lobby card summary is wrong. It's actually _eight_ thieves who plot to steal the Russian Crown Jewels! One man and seven women (including rock group the Karlins as martial artist triplets). See more »
Marcello Mastroianni as a descendant of Russian aristocracy trying to steal the jewels that his father lost in roulette on the day he was born, assisted by a crack team of 7 beautiful women? It sounds better than it plays. Marcello is clearly enjoying himself playing multiple roles (the central character and other members of his royal family who frequently "appear" in his mind and guide him), and unless I'm mistaken he is also the one who sings the terrific title song, as for the women (the team includes a "reformed" thief, a cat burglar, a Marxist, an Asian stripper, and three identical judo-practicing sisters!), they are attractive and fun to watch. The film, however, is not particularly funny; the capers themselves are both hard to follow and hard to believe. It also goes on a bit too long. ** out of 4.
