This over-long comedy from 1964 was so funny that I forgot to laugh.

I certainly wasn't expecting to be bowled over with hilarity by this 54-year-old film's dated humor - But, believe me, this picture was even worse than I had imagined it would be.

Out of the 3 principal characters in the story - It was Orville Spooner, played by Ray Walston, who grated on my nerves, big-time, with his irritating antics and annoying scenery chewing that prevailed throughout this stale and boring movie.

When it comes to this 1965 film's title - "Kiss Me, Stupid" - I really don't get the "Kiss Me" part of it - But - The "Stupid" part of it pretty much says everything that needs to be said (in a nutshell) about this ridiculously contrived rubbish.

And, speaking about this film's 3 principal actors - Dean Martin, Kim Novak, and Ray Walston - I really can't decide which one of this terrible trio put in the most cringe-worthy performance of all.

Was it Dean? - Who was basically just playing himself - (But he just couldn't do it convincingly)

Was it Kim? - Who (once again) was playing a cheap, white-trash tart. (Yawn!)

Was it Ray? - Who (as the annoyingly eccentric Orville Spooner character) was chewing up the scenery, left, right, and centre.

Anyway - It really doesn't matter much who was the worst - 'Cause, unfortunately, as a combined trio they, literally, tore this film's unfunny story right up into absolute shreds.

What happens to a dumb Billy Wilder sex farce when you don't have Marilyn Monroe to redeem the proceedings. To get a fairly accurate idea of this principle, imagine if "The Seven Year Itch" had been cast with Kim Novak. (Shudder). For yet another example of this, see Wilder's "Irma La Douce". (Squirm). All this panting and smirking becomes grotesque without Marilyn's evanescent qualities. But I can't be sure that even her majestic, angelic blankness could salvage this mess of poop. I love Wilder when he gets it right ("Some Like it Hot", "A Foreign Affair") but when he misses, he misses so widely that it makes one wonder whether he actually LIKED sex.

Loved this movie. I have rented this movie numerous times and I can't buy it for my own dvd collection, because it's out-of-print. I wonder who owns the rights to Kiss Me, Stupid? Because, this movie should be available for sale to the movie-loving public.

Almost unwatchable due to scratches. Sad since it's a funny, though risque, film by none other than Director Billy Wilder.
