Fabulously Funny and Entertainging
17 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This firm is hilarious! I admit I bought it because my favorite actor Louis Jourdan is in it--and he does comedy flawlessly in his role as Henri Tournel, best friend to Rex Harrison's Victor Chandebisse. Rosemary Harris is brilliant as Victor's wife Gabrielle. In fact, this film is perfectly cast, and each performance is top-notch. There is nothing not to like about this movie. I laugh myself to tears every time I watch this. Mistaken identity, trysts, gun-toting jealous husband--all revolving around a hotel--make for lighthearted escapades and fun. This is the rare film that truly allows the viewer to put all troubles aside and have fun. There is no political message, no deeply philosophical meaning, no call to action in this film. This is pure fun. This is a brief interlude away from the daily routine, the problems, stresses, and cares of daily life.

I highly recommend this film.
