Without entertainment value
It is entirely possible that at the time of its initial release this picture was considered "mature" and "daring" because of its suggestiveness concerning sex (primarily of the procreative kind). It may even have caused a few very innocent souls to blush from time to time. Making allowances for the foregoing, there is nevertheless nothing of interest for today's viewer in such an insipid, painfully unfunny situation comedy - the kind which (minus the sex) used to fill prime time on weeknights. The characters are 100% genuine cardboard: real persons don't talk or act or strike poses like the types seen here. Sheepish smiles, double-takes, gulps and smirks may come to the fore occasionally in real life, but not constantly. Apparently, they are intended to amuse us - like the characteristic gesture of pouring a stiff drink when an awkward moment seems to be approaching. I can only wonder whose idea it was to cast Richard Widmark in this entirely inappropriate role. Was it intended to demonstrate his versatility as an actor? He fails badly, and conspicuously. Doris Day and Gig Young play characteristic roles without any measure of distinction.

Many episodes of 1950s TV situation comedies produced better results than this. Someone should have warned the paying customers to stay home.
