When the opening credits run, and the supporting female cast members 'measurements' are shown beneath their names, you have no doubt you're in the 60's, bedroom farce, defined. In a roll reversal of sorts Jerry Lewis plays straight man to Tony Curtis this time around.
Bernie Lawrence (Curtis) is an American newspaper man stationed in Paris, the man for whom there is never too many airline hostesses, just too little time. His delicately balanced, and timed to the minute, 4-way love life comes totally unwound when old pal Robert Reed (Lewis) arrives for an unexpected stay.
Cliché after cliché, time stamped in most every shot, Boeing Boeing is a tribute to a different type of filmmaking than we see today, a different morality, a different approach to comedy.
Wonderful Paris sights are an added treat. Recommended.
