Excellent. Everyone should have a copy of this film classic. The wonderful characters are brilliantly drawn by real stars of cinema from an age when movie making was a serious business. I got a used copy which worked fine and saved me a few pennies.

The comic genius of Billy Wilder was never better illustrated than by this bitter sweet romantic comedy. It's focus ranges from the general with its' seering indictment of the corporate world to the particular and a wonderful exploration of the central characters's lives in the persons of Lemmon, MacLaine and MacMurray.

Lemmon's performance as the central "everyman" or John Doe character caught between career enhancement and love, is superb. MacLaine provides a wonderfully tragic heroine and McMurray is immoral corporate America personified.

Laughter freely mingles with tears as Lemmon struggles to assert his identity against a rising tide of corruption and infidelity. It's warm, it's funny, it's wonderfully evocative but most of all it makes you consider the ethics of the corporate world and their impact on society at large.

An all together superior romantic comedy

Classic movie that should be in everyone's collection.

Super acting and writing and well directed.

It is black & white so not sure why it has a colour image on the front, unless its designed to fool some people.

One of my favourite films. I watch it every Xmas. Wilder at his best, and Shirley McLaine gives one of the great female performances in film. Yes!
