Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

An unfunny and tasteless farrago very much of its time, that looks like an attempt by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to have a holiday on location in Mexico away from fellow clan members Sammy Davis Jr and Peter Lawford. Surely, though, they could have afforded a break in the sun without dragging along an awkwardly cast Deborah Kerr? There's a moderately entertaining turn from Cesar Romero, plus a motley collection of supporting players including Hermione Baddeley and Trini Lopez, not to mention Sinatra's daughter Nancy. Beautifully photographed by Garbo's cameraman William H Daniels, who also gets a producer credit, it's not entirely without interest either. Yet it's surprisingly underdirected by one-time dance supremo, Jack Donohue.
