    Although critics didn't really take to the film, and I'm not expecting much from it - I'm dying to see this because it was filmed in cinemascope and with the set design and style, it looks wonderful.

    I'll definitely give this one a rental for that reason alone.

    Who knows, I may actually enjoy the film as well.

    I was just thinking the other day how fast this movie came and went.

    Marc,

    If you enjoy movies like "Pillow Talk", this one hits the spot. It in some ways parodies and is a tribute to those type of romantic comedies, which is probably one of the reasons it didn't do well. (Competing against "The Matrix Reloaded" didn't help either.) I have a feeling it will find a home in home video.

    This film is great just for the scene that shows a great use of split screens [​IMG].

    As Marc points out, the films claims itself as CinemaScope, and that opening title card was a joy and a half to see when I caught the picture in theatres (I hadn't read about it beforehand), but I'm still questioning whether this is a Panavision production credited to CinemaScope "tongue-in-cheek," because of its setting, or whether it is true CinemaScope. This would depend on the lenses that were used (I doubt they'd shoot in early CinemaScope, which would have a lot of image matted away in current projector set-ups, but late CinemaScope and Panavision use the same film frame, just different lenses).

    I've noted one or two films that insist they were made in CinemaScope of late. 1997's animated Anastasia is another. If anyone has definite info on this, I'd love to hear it.

    Either way, the DVD should be a peach. [​IMG]

    Funny how this movie gets pretty darn good cover art and a film like "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" gets what it's getting.
    I think I might actually give this one a rental. It looks like one of the least horrible romantic comedies.

    Odd pull quote there... Ebert & Roeper are demanding that I "love this film."
