Fasten your seatbelts! Adapted from the stage to the screen, the film follows the lives of American journalist Bernard Lawrence (Tony Curtis) and his friend and fellow journalist Robert Reed (Jerry Lewis) in Paris. Bernard, the ultimate bachelor, is juggling romances with three different stewardesses who just happen to have three different schedules and nationalities. Robert is scheming to take over for his buddy after Bernard’s job relocates him to another country. The three luscious flight attendants are played by French Dany Saval, German Christiane Schmidtmer and British Suzanna Leigh. And "that old Brooklyn buzz saw, Thelma Ritter, steals the picture" (The New York Times) as their wisecracking housekeeper. Directed by television veteran, John Rich (All in the Family).
actually i bought this movie for a friend who is a big jerry lewis fan. he thought the movie was a riot. he said that both tony curtis and jerry lewis were so young in this movie...movie was of course a piece of fluff but had it funny moments
Boy is this movie ever exciting. I am happy to say that I love Jerry Lewis, and Tony Curtis. This is one of my favorite movies because Jerry Lewis is not a total idiot and acts stupid all the way through. Usually he is making faces and talking stupid with silly vocies.He is funny at first but really after a while it gets old and annoying. This movies shows a different Jerry Lewis. He plays a Old buddy of tony Curtis's who happens ro have 3 pehoncas and they are all flight stewardess who attnd differnt airlines. When Jerry moves to Paris and moves in with Tony for a while. Only after the first day Tony's world comes crashing down. Jerry has to play cat and mouse. He can't remeber which one he suppose to take to dinner.As Tony and Jerry try their best to keep them apart.When one women walks in they change their mind about dinner. Or the girls get all in a tizy because they want to know why their is that kind of food. Jerry ends up falling for one of the girls. But Tony and Jerry are hilarious. Tony has to keep talking and switching rooms to keep the girls apart. While Jerry changes the pictures and the clothes in the gilrs rooms. Jerry actully acts ,like a human in this. Jerry is very funny. And Tony is even better they make you laugh untill your side hurts. But after seeing this movie for over the 12th time it is not funny and gets old. This movie gets funnier by the minute literally every time the door opens!
I first watched this movie in Iran when I was no more than 6 years old! Since then, I have searched far and wide for this amazing and hilarious comedy only to find it here. This movie will have you rolling on the floor with clever slapstick and double entendres. It is a superb addition to any video library!
