The couple’s actions and reactions are determined in an ad hoc basis, according to the demands of situation and mood contrast (of which there is only too little) rather than any consistent characterization.
The Kellermans have got to be the unluckiest couple ever. "Forget it?! I can forget my watch, my luggage, my money. I am not gonna forget my divine rights." / "9 o'clock means 9 O-CLOCK!" Jack Lemmon was a genius!!!
Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis work great together and the comedic timing is perfect but something about this movie fell flat for me. I feel like this would have worked better as a surrealist horror film.
i learned an odd lesson from this film and it was this: resist every opportunity and life will send a lot of bad luck your way. i enjoyed the movie a lot but man, it's really depressing for how much comedy it encompasses.
