Storyline

TV personality Robert Danvers, an exceedingly vain rotter, seduces young women daily, never staying long with one. He meets his match in Marion, an American, 19, who's available but refuses any romantic illusions. At first, her candor and cynicism put him off, but after he witnesses her breaking up with her rocker boyfriend, he's attracted to her and invites her on an idyllic two-week trip to France. Slowly, she pokes holes in his artifice and he comes to care for her. When they return to London, with the press thinking they're married, they come to a cross-roads: go back to their old lives, marry each other, or invent a new, open relationship. Is Robert up to it?

Swallows Itself.
1 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A womanizing British television star (Peter Sellers) falls in lust quickly with a silly American groupie (Goldie Hawn) in this fluffy stinker. Sellers and Hawn make for a genuinely irresistible pair, but we have dumb situations on top of dumb situations that wear out their welcomes real quick. Sellers, who obviously cannot control his primal urges, allows himself to fall under Hawn's spell and naturally he never does seem to recover. Really nothing new here as Hawn takes off on a similar act that she had developed in "Cactus Flower" a year earlier (a role which won her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 1969) and Sellers continues his hilarious (but sometimes tiring) "Pink Panther" routines. Adequate way to kill some time, but critically mediocre at best. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
