Sometimes the Retriever and I see eye to eye, but . . . The conventional wisdom on this film is wrong. It has its moments, is occasionally hilarious, and almost always enjoyable. It is not Shampoo or Heaven Can Wait, but it is head and shoulders above many films people rave about. (And the Heston Seldes performances are mawkish and out of place.) There is much that could have been done to improve this film, but it probably got panned because people like to hate Warren Beatty when he gives them the slimmest opportunity to do so.
