"This is a great movie. If you love Frank Sinatra, you'll love this one. It is a light hearted comedy, with all the charm and pizazz that Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin give the screen. You will smile all from beginning to end at all the confusion that erupts. It is must see for all the fans of 1950s and 1060s movies."

"This movie gave me great delight as I really enjoyed looking back at the good clean style of movie made back in this era. The actors are great - especially Deborah Kerr - and I especially liked the interaction between the friendship of the characaters played by Frank and Dean. I wish there were more movies made along these lines for todays audience, which suits us baby boomers. All the sex, violence and action of today's films is unnecessary. Suggestiveness gives room for the imagination. I fully recommend this movie."
Terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad movie

"Dull ad man (Frank Sinatra) has a bored wife (Deborah Kerr) who's ready to call it quits. While in Mexico, they accidentally get divorced and then she accidentally marries her husband's best pal (Dean Martin). Hilarity ensues (NOT).

This terrible sixties comedy completely wastes the talents of Sinatra and Kerr who appear painfully self-conscious and wooden (especially when dancing the frug in formal attire at a go-go club!), and the script is just ridiculous. Who's going to believe Frank Sinatra as a boring fuddy-duddy? Or a thirty-something (when he was really 50)? Deborah Kerr is way too prim and proper to be a with-it swinger, and she's definitely not funny. Martin plays his usual laid-back playboy, but really serves no purpose and seems to have wandered in from some other film set. The so-called legal problems that occur in Mexico because of the language barrier are tedious and unbelievable; these people are wealthy and would have had their team of lawyers straighten it all out in no time.

This was an obvious attempt to copy the success of The Grass Is Greener, where Kerr was bored with hubby Cary Grant and attracted to swinger Robert Mitchum. That was a cute movie; this one is a dud."
