By the time this movie was made, the 1960s were swinging and sunny Doris Day had developed a chic and slightly risqué image, promoted by her producer/husband Martin Melcher. Melcher encouraged her towards projects such as this one, in which she and screen husband Rod Taylor suspect each other of varying infidelities abroad. It's not too bad, although director Ralph Levy (The Jack Benny Show) doesn't seem to know how to find the necessary cinematic scale. The problem is that both Day and Taylor deserve much better; indeed, they went on to show what a good partnership they could be the following year in The Glass Bottom Boat. In his prime, Taylor was capable of enlivening mediocre material, and here he proves a worthy successor to Rock Hudson and James Garner as a foil for Day.
