This movie takes me back to the college days of the 1960s in Southern California area...although I believe it was set a bit north of Los Angeles in the San Luis Obispo vicinity. The architecture, surrounding trees, and clothing are very authentic of that time period. It was very typical to see younger women working through their relationships just as the main heroine Robin did with her boyfriend David. The landlord Hogan, played by the talented Jack Lemmon, could be plausible for that period also. It is a relaxing, charming, movie that gives me back a bit of my youth in small town college life. Paul Lynde and Imogene Coca are the icing on the cake of this funny romance comedy. Ah, the innocence of that time....pure and simple delight and fun!!! AND it was very true of that innocence.

Jack Lemmon is Mr. Hogan, a swinging bachelor who has got the perfect set up. He is landlord to an apartment complex that occupies women and only women. It seems Mr. Hogan has had a lot of luck dating his tenants; after all, it's hard to resist his charm and womanizing ways. That is, until the faithful Robin moves in. Robin, played by Carol Linley, is engaged to be married. Now this doesn't appear to be a problem until she tells Mr. Hogan that her boyfriend, David, will be moving in with her(Did they do this sort of thing in 1963?). Now this poses a problem! How is Mr. Hogan going to romance Robin when her boyfriend is constantly getting in the way? And so the love triangle begins... Mr. Hogan, trying to get in good with Robin, while trying to keep fiancé David out. Sounds predictable, right? Well it may be but there are a few surprises that will make you laugh so hard you might even shed a few tears. Anyone who has ever seen a Jack Lemmon movie knows that he can be a riot on the screen. I've seen this one a couple of times and laughed out loud each time. As a matter of fact, last time I watched it with Quon I had to convince him that the all-woman apartment complex wouldn't fly these days. Poor guy. . . almost spent a large sum of his inheritance on an old run-down apartment building.

Carol Linley and Dean Jones are what young lovers in love and want to live together before they get married to see if they are going to be compatible. The best part of the show is when Paul Lynde(plays the gardener at the apartment complex that Jack Lemmon owns and runs with tenants that are ONLY unmarried women!!) Anyways, Paul Lynde is a scream when he discovers while he is watering the flowers, he is really watering Jack Lemmon that got so drunk the night before, he fell off a ladder while trying to get a peek at Carol Linley while she was showering! Imogene Cocoa plays Paul's wife and Jack's cleaning lady! You can watch this movie again and again and laugh as hard as you did the first time you saw it!

I have watched this movie many times through the years and it is still just as funny as the first time. Jack Lemmon plays the part of a irritating, yet hilarious, landlord of an apartment complex, who is constantly getting into other people's business and usually getting himself into some pretty unusual predicaments. I would highly recommend watching this movie, if you have never seen it before.

This movie takes the viewer back in time to the free and easy lifestyle of the 60's. Characters like Jack Lemon's definately existed back then and still do today, though in hiding. It was an age of free and harmless flirtations between the sexes. We all did the flirting at work, school, and at public gatherings. No one was ever harmed by it that I know of; and no lawsuits ever prevailed against it. I am positive that women enjoyed the attention as much as men did; and what better way to open up a conversation with a woman than to kid her a little and pay her the respectful attention she might just enjoy without any harm being done. Of course, Lemon's character was not respectful of the woman because he had only one intention on his mind. In a sense, he used entrapment in that he tricked unsuspecting young women into renting one of his apartments just so he could have a chance at seducing them. But I think he got his due from more than one of the girls, so the moral of the story is fixed in place rather well. Good and innocence prevail; evil and coniving people do not. Doesn't always work that way in real life of course. For light entertainment and ageless humor, this movie is a good bet. If nothing else, it projects a nice example of life in the 60's and reminds those, like me, of what it was like back then. Lighten up, buy the movie, and just enjoy the tour of far more simple times when political correctness was just a bad dream.

Perfectly capturing the fact that the more times change, the more they stay the same, this successful sex farce hasn't enjoyed the same staying power as the Doris Day/Rock Hudson flicks. Yet, all the same elements are there: brightly colored cinematography, swinging sixties music, gorgeous cast (Dean Jones & Carol Lynley look exquisite), hilarious character players (Imogene Coca & Paul Lynde), big names (Jack Lemmon & Edie Adams) and slapstick sexual situations. It's also an interesting time capsule of early 60's sexual hypocrisy.
