Review by Larry W. Yother (posted on 17-Jul-2007)

This is a wonderfully funny movie with an edge of black comedy characteristic of the early 1970's when it was made. Elaine May reportedly disowned her interest in it, but I can't imagine why. Everything works -- the characters are realistic, the ending is realistic (and happy), the plot is plausible, and the whole thing is very funny.
