Rating: C+ -- Minnelli wanted Marilyn Monroe for the lead, and indeed Debbie Reynolds is doing too much in this comedy about gender reversal and transgressive conduct, though Tony Curtis has some good moments Full Review

Shot by a jealous husband and lost at sea, Charles finds himself returned to the world as a woman named Charlie.?

Product Description:

George Axelrod's GOODBYE CHARLIE flopped on Broadway with Lauren Bacall in the lead, but fared a little better as a film vehicle for Debbie Reynolds. Charlie (Harry Madden) is an inveterate philanderer who is shot dead by jealous husband Walter Matthau. Through a celestial fluke, Charlie's soul enters the well-rounded body of Debbie Reynolds. In this form, Charlie/Debbie seeks to settle old scores with her murderer as well as several other enemies. As if these aren't complications enough, Charlie's best friend Tony Curtis falls in love with Debbie, knowing full well that Debbie isn't really Debbie. If you liked GOODBYE CHARLIE once, you'll love it twice: Blake Edwards retooled the whole megillah for Ellen Barkin, added a trendy feminist underlining, and came up with SWITCH (1991).

Screw-ball comedy Movie Lover: from SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA US -- April, 22, 2013

You can see why Curtis and Reynolds were paired to a screwball comedy. "Charlie" was a womanizing cad, shot dead by a jealous husband (Matthau). He's resurrected and comes back to visit his buddy, as a woman (Reynolds). Tony Curtis did a couple of screwball comedies in the early sixties, this one and "Boeing, Boeing" especially come to mind. He's a good straightman for Reynolds. Had this movie been done 10-15 years earlier, I could've seen Cary Grant playing the Curtis role.
