Bogdanovich revives the screwball comedy. Which was nice for those who love(d) this type of humor I guess, personally I'm not a big fan. It's a style that seems to mistake ruckus and nervousness for actual comedy. To be submitted to that for 90 minutes can be quite grating, which describes this film pretty well for me.

Banister and Burns are a loveless couple who are about to get married. Until Judy shows up into their lives. She takes a liking to Banister and doesn't take no for an answer. Add a couple of identical-looking bags into the mix and you have all the ingredients for an hour and a half of hysterical confusion.

The performances are actually quite decent here, it's just a bummer that the actors have little to work with. The dialogues are bland, the jokes are dim, and the plot isn't interesting in the least. It's a good thing the film is relatively short, even then it grossly overstays its welcome. Not great.

Irritation overload
