... unless you are a fan of the main players. This is not the film to MAKE you a fan of Doris Day or David Niven. That's the rub.
Ms. Day is in a situation comedy which was much more suitable as a TV show. The comedy and performances in this film are very slight. Day's musical performance with the children is very poorly choreographed.
The scenes featuring the family moving into the mansion would have been more successful in a "Three Stooges" film. The children should have been kept in the cage for the entire lenght of the film. Some of the sets are nice. Janis Paige and Mr. Niven are good - they should have hooked up...
