4 snoozes. If that many. Somehow or other, this was on Broadway in the early 40's and ran for a year and a half. Score - not in this movie - by Cole Porter, of all wonderful composers. Danny Kaye in the Hope role and Eve Arden reprising the role she had on the stage. There is no one better in droll delivery than Eve Arden. No one better in anything than Eve Arden. But she can't pull this mediocre nonsense together. Bob Hope tries and goes no further than his usual shtick. And, of course, Betty Hutton is Betty Hutton is Betty Hutton and if you like Betty Hutton, you are home free. For those of us, like myself, who feels as if you might as well be pulling a two ton truck, uphill, and you want to save yourself some energy - let this one rest in the land of best forgotten entertainments from an era that mostly knew better. Outrageously unfunny and, in fact, unkind - the 3 females out on the make to spite their straying husbands - are made fun of and called all sorts of names that would have feminists up in arms today. As well they should be. Anyway, if you like Eve Arden, you'll be happy. AS for the rest -- I think I'd rather go to the dentist.
