Overall, this grab-bag of 60s genres really doesn't work very well. The MGM gloss is clearly evident, however, and some of the set pieces are not to be missed.
Two-thirds of the way through this flick, I realized that I had lost interest, mainly due to weak characterizations, and stupid plot contrivances. The AM dance number and subsequent vocal come out of nowhere - this is definitely an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink script.
AM's performance is unsubstantial, although LJ provides his usual touch of sophistication. RC and CE are completely inconsequential.
Recommended only for set and costume design......and perhaps for the chance to see AM in her prime.
