New York tourist Tony Curtis falls asleep on a Southern California beach on his first night in the West and wakes up to The New Phantasmagoria--catamarans, surfers (including a dog), bodybuilders, acrobats, motorcycle chicken races, a nut fishing in the shallows . . . and Sharon Tate as a skydiver named Malibu who gives Curtis the rapture of artificial respiration when he is conked on the head by a flying surfboard. This is the '60s American Dream: youth and beauty and money and sex in Southern California. Go west, all men.Written by
Having just arrived in Malibu "Carlo Cofield" (Tony Curtis) has the misfortune of meeting an accident-prone young woman named "Laura Califatti" (Claudia Cardinale) who manages to wreck his car and set fire to all of his possessions inside. Feeling somewhat guilty she invites him to her house in order to give him her car insurance paperwork. Unable to locate it right away she allows him to spend the night on the couch with the hope that she can manage to obtain it from her boyfriend "Rod Prescott" (Robert Webber) the next day. But as luck would have it Rod comes to the house unexpectedly and that's when trouble begins for everyone involved. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that, although this film started off pretty well and certainly had potential, it fizzled out about half-way through due to both a lack of chemistry and humor. It does, however, feature two extremely beautiful women in Sharon Tate (as "Malibu") and the aforementioned Claudia Cardinale as well as a decent performance by Tony Curtis. But other than that there really isn't that much here and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
