The Glass Bottom Boat (1966)



Reviews and Comments

This riotous Doris Day vehicle is part romantic comedy, part spy spoof. Expectedly, there are some fine musical numbers, mistaken identity humor, a little slapstick, and romantic tension. Some of the scene-stealing comic talents in the supporting cast, including Dom DeLuise and Dick Martin, shine. It's a bit uneven and overlong, and the hi-tech gadget bits are silly (worthwhile only to see what the sixties' view of "hi-tech" was), but on the whole, the film is lots of fun.
