CGiii Comment

It is probable blasphemy if one criticizes such a classic - with such icons - Hepburn & Tracey...BUT, this battle of the sexes, a supposed comedy, is a lame turkey.

Frankly, it takes great concentration to refrain from yawning throughout the droning dialogue.

Even the gay character offers no respite.

It may have been ground-breaking in its day but, now, it is preachy and unfunny.
