It's tough being the cat's meow! A zany blend of slapstick gags and madcap comedy (Cue), this hilarious (Motion Picture Herald) romp, starring Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole and Woody Allen in his acting and screenwriting debut, is the wildest, wackiest (Boxoffice) film to emerge from swingin' 60s. Michael (O'Toole) is a mademoiselle magnet. His demented psychiatrist (Sellers) and sex-starved friend (Allen) would kill for this problem, but his would-be fiancé (Romy Schneider) might just kill him. Undergoing therapy, Michael tries to reform, but it won't be easy with sex kittens like Ursula Andress, Paula Prentiss and Capucine on his tail! Wonderfully directed by Clive Donner (The Nude Bomb) and featuring the hit title song written by Burt Bacharach and performed by Tom Jones and featuring other Bacharach hits performed by Dionne Warwick and Manfred Mann.

The quality of this Blu-ray is excellent. The colors are bright and gorgeous.
The film itself stars Peter O'Toole, Peter Sellers, Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss and Ursula Andress. The film also stars Woody Allen, in his first film. Woody also wrote the screenplay. The film is an anarchic 1960s comedy with many funny scenes, including one with Woody and Peter Sellers filmed on a bank of the Seine (the film is set in Paris).
The plot, such as it is, concerns Peter O'Toole's problem that he wants to marry Romy Schneider, but is distracted by Capucine, Paula Prentiss and Ursula Andress. As Woody Allen's character might say, this is a problem?
Finally, the trailer for the film (included on the Blu-ray) cautions that the film is for adults only. Which only goes to show how things have changed in the last 49 years. The sexual content in the film would not seem out of place today on the Disney channel. There is no violence, drug use or bad language. If rated today, the film would be PG-13--because of cigarette smoking!
Anyway, it was a huge box office hit, all of which caused the critics to revise their earlier assessments and proclaim it a masterpiece, which it is. Watch it and enjoy.
