Reviews
Mine: A terrific story done well by Matthau and Lemmon.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Third filming of the Hecht-MacArthur play about wild and woolly Chicago newspapermen in the 1920s has hardly anything new to offer (except four-letter words) but remains an enjoyable vehicle for this fine cast. Only Burnett misses the boat as pathetic hooker Molly Malloy. Remade again (!) in 1988 as SWITCHING CHANNELS. Panavision.
