Pedrito F (ag) wrote: Best Romantic Comedy involving prostitution ever made. Beautiful Shirley MacClaine and Jack Lemmon at his best directed by Mr. Wilder back when "movies" meant "art". A classic masterpiece on its genre.
Alex C (nl) wrote: A fantastically fun film with gorgeous animation and titillating action sequences. The world created by the animators and the director is fascinating and exciting. The story was a bit thin and uninspired at points, but the lighthearted characterization and steady humor make up for any trite plot developments. Definitely a great family film

Laura S (ag) wrote: I have been severely bipolar all my life and could relate to this movie in some ways. The parents in this movie seemed very real in their concern and feelings of helplessness for their struggling son. The problem with this movie is that there is no "fix" for being bipolar. Getting the girl you love and taking meds will not make everything fantastic for the rest of your life like it shows at the end of the movie. With real bipolar disorder, you have to continue to see a psychiatrist regularly, your meds have to be adjusted throughout your life because they lose potency after a while and you definitely still have some bipolar symptoms (although with a lot less frequency and severity). Bipolar has become the new designer illness, and I think this movie is misleading people by making bipolar something that will just "go away" with the right set of circumstances. I guess they will make a romantic comedy about anything nowadays. Maybe next time it will be a romantic comedy about a retarded guy and autistic girl...

U see two men get it on, a kid thrown out of a van in the middle of no where, a kid drown, an old lady robbed and good old herion use. Plenty to feel ok about laughing at in this movie tho. Make it ya beeswax to watch it one day when you are in a silly mood.
