Critics reviews

Aided by ace comedy cinematographer Tim Suhrstedt, Bogdanovich keeps things humming along at screwball velocity, adroitly moving his camera around the stage and turning each corner and prop into a potential locus of catastrophe. More doors are slammed here than in the entire broadcast run of Frasier.

The transition from stage to screen may be bumpy in spots, but this movie is much funnier than Bogdanovich’s What’s Up, Doc?, and the long-take shooting style is executed with fluidity and precision.
