This is a delightful, funny adaptation of Neil Simon's play by the same name. It's wonderfully written and acted, with an especially delightful turn by Charles Boyer as the eccentric upstairs neighbor. Director Gene Saks does an excellent job bringing life, fluidity, and dynamics to watching a play, finding settings other than the apartment and moving the camera around the confined space gracefully.

The situation is likely to appeal mostly to older teens as they enter into long-term relationships and start to fantasize about what their adult lives might be like. They'll enjoy watching the attractive and relatable Paul and Corie as they struggle to make their relationship work.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
