Rating: 2/5 -- Spain never looked lovelier, but the banal romances of the lightweight principals in this retooled vehicle make the trip wholly unnecessary. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 3/5 -- 1964 sexual revolution fodder, with some slapstick for redemption.
As usual in this type of farce, male and female leads have fewer comic lines than supporting players. But Curtis registers exceptionally well when detailing supposed marital problems to adviser. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- In a small role as a production man, note Wayne, who appears as Benjamin Franklin in a superb one-man show around the world. Storch also turns in a neat cameo as a motorcycle cop. Full Review
Graceless stuff, criminally wasting Bacall and Fonda as a couple with marital problems (they're in love, but constantly quarrelling), and with Quine's moderate flair for comedy nowhere in evidence.
Dr. Helen Brown (Natalie Wood) of the International Institute of Advanced Marital and Pre-Marital Studies is a therapist who advises single women about sex. And Bob Weston (Tony Curtis) is a sleazy magazine editor who plans to reveal the shocking truth about her: that she's a mere twenty-three year old virgin without any hands-on experience for the job. But when the two meet, fireworks explode -- and Weston may just find himself choosing between a hot romance or a hot story. A loosely based story on the adventures of Helen Gurley Brown, editor of Cosmopolitan and author of "Sex and the Single Girl." A bawdy madcap farce featuring an inspired supporting cast including Lauren Bacall, Henry Fonda, Larry Storch, and Mel Ferrer.
