The New York Times critic noted in his review of this film on May 27, 1967, that "of all the witty demonstrations, one of the most amusing" in the film was when Jayne Mansfield loses her bra in the home of Terry-Thomas. The sex symbol's two-minute cameo was shot under great personal distress, however. Filmed in mid December 1966, at the time Zoltan Hargitay, Mansfield's youngest son with Mickey Hargitay, was recovering from spinal meningitis at Conejo Valley, California Community Hospital, after undergoing brain surgery resulting from his being mauled by a lion in a freak accident at the Jungleland Park in Thousand Oaks, California, on November 26, 1966. Zoltan spent exactly one month in the hospital, returning home to Jayne's "Pink Palace" on that year's Christmas morning. Though several Mansfield films were released after her untimely death six months later, the scenes in this one were, as an actress, her final moments before the professional movie cameras. See more »

This is a very entertaining artifact of its era, the swinging sixties.Concerning the attempts of Walter Matthau to cheat on his sexy wife Inger Stevens with the even more sexy and luscious Sue Ann Langdon (what did this guy want, everything?)cheered on by his rake of a pal, Robert Morse(!!). A case of stunt casting which in this case works. The sexual revolution hits poor suburbanite Matthau right in the face and he wants in on it. Who can blame him? This would-be bawdy comedy was directed by nice guy Gene Kelly, so if it's not rapacious enough for some, it's still the best piece of bawd this side of Billy Wilder.
