This is a well written screenplay with clever if biting wit and
comment along the way. I love the performance of dear Dyan
Cannon mainly and it remains the only appeal of the movie for
me personally. As such much of the play is in fact empty of this
feeling given her early exit as scripted.

The moral of the story is that if you cant do a gal justice - don't
bother trying to keep her in bed with you in whatever are your
exploits otherwise.
