Movie posters for this film featured two long text preambles that read: (1) "David Fowler is respectful, sincere, considerate, communicative, kind, appreciative, thoughtful, and loving with every woman he knows. It's made him very popular. Now he's searching for the one he'd like to spend his life with. And with so many women to choose from, the question is whether he'll find her, before he loses his mind" and (2) "David Loves Louise for her passion. Nancy for her vulnerability. Svetlana for her grace. Courtney for her patience. And Marianna for her understanding. He finds something to love in all women. And that's why all of them love him back. He wants to settle down. But he can't settle on one. And deciding which woman in the world he loves most, is driving him out of his mind". See more »
It is true that this re-make does not measure up to the French original, but it is still not half as bad as some reviewers make it out to be. In fact it is quite good if you try to disregard the more "American" details. It starts out with a funeral and works its way back from there. Reynolds is enough of a hunk to make the story plausible and Julie Andrews was never more beautiful. All thruout the film, Blake Edwards succeeds in maintaining an infinitely "sad" note, which works excellently and undoubtedly adds to the quality of the film. 6 out of 10 points.
