    A lot of fine actors in an overblown, unfunny piece of CRAP !

    the middle finger of blake Edwards to the face of walt Disney.

  • An Overburdened Mishmash

    I can why "S.O.B." originally bombed at the box office. Blake Edwards seems to have thrown everything but kitchen sink into this film. He overwhelms us with unnecessary symbolism into a satire of people trying to resurrect an awful film. This movie would have been much better if Edwards had stuck more to his basic story with some added laughs (but none of Robert Webber's failed bathroom humor). I hate to see that Julie Andrews bared her bosom just for this overburdened mishmash of a film.

    If you want to see a good satire on Hollywood, which has a skillful balance of light and dark, affection and disdain, then check out the Coen Boys ""Hail Ceasar." That's how it's done, Blake.

    A movie that sets out to show us how awful Hollywood is (yawn) and succeeds in showing us how wretched Blake Edwards was. Truly a sour, bitter, unfunny film. If the movie industry is as hellish as this film suggests, then Edwards was truly a masochist of S and M proportions, as he labored in its thorny vineyards for the better parts of five decades and cheerfully accepted its many awards and rewards. Maybe if he had made a humorless film that explored that paradox I could respect the guy. As it is, all I can say is, "You've made at least three great movies. Quit your whining." Give it a D for doleful.

    This was the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. What a wonderful cast - I laughed so hard when Felix tries to commit suicide and falls through the floor. And it sure helped to have the good doctor around to dispense shots. What had to be the funniest scene was at the funeral home and what happened after, while "his friends" were at the real funeral. All I can say it was funny. All Bill Holden movies are available on Amazon Prime. He was such a versatile actor, he could play serious and also funny roles and his presence on the screen was larger than life.

  • Classic Blake Edwards

    A classic Blake Edwards comedy along the lines of "The Pink Panther" and "A Shot in the Dark" films. Some old time Hollywood stars at their comedic best. The funeral home scene and the sequence immediately following are especially funny. Plus, you get to see Julie Andrews topless. Definitely worth a look--if you can find it.
