It seems to take a lot of effort to get the whole family to watch a film these days but this did it. Liked the fact that the female agent, who looked to be 007's love interest, didn't become too important (and at times proved useful). The shower scene female was also quickly dispatched having served her purpose, even if a 'waste of a good scotch'. After that we got on with the action which provided some originality in places. Light entertainment that did it's job without too much annoyance.
The last time I watched my favourite film, I was in a bad place, emotionally and physically - and I wished for a minute I was Charlotte, and I could be romanced into finding my purpose in life, to keep going, "keep writing"; I'm watching it again, having today put down a small deposit for my first proper house, far away from hospital beds and scare stories, and I think if Charlotte & I were friends, she'd understand.
Cary was so in Love with Sophia when they met on the set for "The Houseboat" and she with him. However, she chose someone else much older than herself, Carlo, because Cary was not yet divorced from his wife although they had been separated for years. He was heartbroken and didn't remarry until he was in his late 70's. He had his first and only child at 76 yo.
