A nimble comedy that doesn't make much sense because it makes nonsense, most of it screechingly funny and played by knockabouts who know that the slapstick was invented for keeping an idea aloft, not for beating it into the ground. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- This dated comedy is saved by Lemmon's comedic genius which eschews macho. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Believable or not, this stuff is funny just so long as one can go with the sour joke- -and that depends upon one's tolerance of trivia and also, perhaps, upon whether one is a fellow or a girl. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 4/5 -- Superior 60s sex comedy.

In the screwball tradition, but the old shack has been redecorated with solid-mahogany furniture, plush drapes and wall-to-wall carpeting. Full Review
[It is] material that is quite up to Jack Lemmon's] exceptional talents. Here is a superb technician at work, an actor whose every movement contributes toward a total effect. Full Review
Cartoonist Stanley Ford, a confirmed bachelor, attends a party one evening... and is bewitched by a blonde Italian knockout who pops out of a cake. Then he does a very stupid thing. He marries her on the spot. Though his new wife is a happy homemaker, a man's man like Stanley has no stomach for domestic bliss. When his attempts at separation fail, he gets an idea. Known for always acting out his hero's scenarios before putting ink to page, he stages her murder and sketches a cartoon based on the scheme. When his wife sees the funny pages, she is frightened and vanishes. Mission accomplished. Not so fast, however, as the police appear and now want to ask him a few questions about his wife's whereabouts...
