Some like it dumb
19 July 2008 | by dave13-1See all my reviews

This is basically a sitcom-level historic romp with lots of 1970s Hugh Hefner influenced toplessness, lots of bed hopping and silly action and little plot or satiric point to make. Superficially similar to the 1956 Bob Hope romp Casanova's Big Night in that the same plot device is used: Casanova enlists the aid of a feckless nobody as a stand-in to do his wooing for him. Here the lucky dimwit is a gambler; Hope had played a tailor. There is also a lot of farcical running about and jumping in and out of windows to propel the comic action and both movies have nice costumes and furnishings to provide the appropriate period air. Of the two, however, this one is definitely the dimwit cousin. Trivia: the producers seemed to be trying to set some kind of record for casting actresses named 'Marisa'. Marisas Berenson and Mell starred and I counted at least two others in the credits.
