A fair movie. Too bad it's in black and white, as Jayne appears topless numerous times, however I think it's the same three scenes shown repeatedly. There are many color photos of Jayne topless and even one showing her buttocks in the Extras section.
The movie is about two married couples (Jayne Mansfield & Tommy Noonan and Marie McDonald & Mickey Hargitay) on an extended cruise. Both couples are childless. Early in the movie Tommy reveals to Jayne that the ships' doctor has confirmed that she's pregnant, or is she? There's an enhancement drug involved that has the side effect of amnesia and then comes the question of who's really the father? You'll have to watch it to get all of the details as I don't want to spoil the movie for you. It's entertaining, but only by about a 5 out of 10 rating.

A Provocative, Sexy,Sensuous delight!!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"One of Jayne Mansfield last films and certainly the most unrestrained was this outrageous sex romp on an ocean liner.The plot,involving bed-hopping and mistaken identities,served as an excuse for her patented infamous nude scenes.This Provocative,sexy,sensuos delight was quite controversial back in the early 60's which the original version was banned in many cities and replaced by a much edited version.When Playboy published a group of still shots from the movie including one described as Jayne"writhing seductively in bed" that issue of Playboy was banned by many cities across the country.Overall,this movie is a Provocatve,Sexy,Sensuous delight that's very well worth watching especially in it's original,unedited movie version!!"

"Promises! Promises! is the ultimate Jayne Mansfiled movie. It is a must for any Jayne Mansfield fan. The movie is very low budget. There is a scene where Marie MacDonald and Tommy Noonan are walking and you can see the microphone in front of them. Jayne Mansfield makes up for all that. I have seen it many times and from the opening credits which thank Jayne Mansfields parents for providing her body to the end it is a Jayne Manfields fan dream come true."
Voyeur and Peeping-Tom Delight !

"It is quite understandable that this film was seen as 'shocking' when it was released.After all,Jayne was the first 'major-star' to appear naked in a movie.Actually those naked scenes are quite strange,and seem out-of-context in the movie plot(if you call that a movie plot!).When,at one point she is in bed naked,she actually looks like she is mastur...Jayne was 30 years old,looked absolutely sensational,mostly as she sings'Promise Her Anything' in that floor-lenght gown.Wow ! This movie is a must-see for any Mansfield fan.We see her with Mickey Hargitay the year before they finally got their divorce;also on a sad note,we get to see Marie 'The Body' McDonald in her last film role(died in 1965).Also another bonus is to watch T.C. Jones,the female impersonator,being himself (Gay as a picnic basket,as Sophia in The Golden Girls,would say !) In no way is this film a Classic,but it is good-fluff,and it sure beats the other poor choices Ms. Mansfield made in her career."

"This is a sexy romp from the 60's and it is a really a lot of fun. The movie has a number of nude scenes of Jayne at her most voluptuous. I'm also looking forward to seeing the photos that were not used in the original Playboy spread. They are supposed to be in with the bonus features."

"When I was a little boy I found my dad's Playboy issue where Jayne Mansfield appeared nude in a pictorial about a movie she was filming. The title was "Promises, Promises" and it never played here, in Mexico, due to censorship. The memory stayed within me and now, quite older, I could get the film and notice that it's a low budget comedy that exploited Mansfield's sex appeal and her magnificent body. Nothing much to it, except that it brings back memories about an era where we were naïve. It's fun and one gets to see a female legend of the fifties."
