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).

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.
both tony curtis and jerry lewis were so young in this movie...movie was of course a piece of fluff but had it funny
