They All Laughed

This is a silly-fun romantic comedy about a bunch of private eyes falling for the women they're supposed to be following. It's got a relatively good cast including John Ritter & Audrey Hepburn. It's really silly though. John Ritter is bumbling around, goofy and slightly inept as always, especially when he's supposed to be in love with a beautiful woman. He makes his prat-falls and runs into things and gets quite a few laughs. Blaine Novak, who has filmography all over the place as writer, producer, actor, etc, plays Arthur, another Private Eye with really big hair, and a way with the ladies, although he hasn't figured out how to keep them from wanting to kill him afterwards apparently for not calling. Ben Gazzara plays the oldest of the 3 detectives in the Agency, and he's supposed to be following Angela, Audrey Hepburn, and instead, he falls for her. There's a few other characters of course, some of them great, some of them kinda boring. Overall the movie isn't great. It's not horrible, but it's definitely not great.

Do you always look sexy when you're running late? I guess I'll have to keep you tardy.
