'70s screwball comedy is lot of fun for the whole family.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie doesn't have any inappropriate content. It's a lot of fun, even if it doesn't come close to meeting the standards of the screwball comedies it's trying to emulate.

  • Families can talk about what they think about the way Judy behaved. Did she ever think ahead, or did she just do what seemed right at the moment? Eunice tells Howard that she does not want romance because she wants something stronger -- trust. What is the point of view of the movie about that? How can you tell? Which is the funniest part of the movie? Were there any parts that were supposed to be funny that you did not think were funny? Why?
