Dudley Moore stars in this funny and heartwarming comedy about a drunk and spoiled rich man who meets and falls in love with a quirky girl (Liza Minnelli) other than whom his parents want him to marry. If he marries Minnelli, he will be cut off by his rich family; he will be forced to live in poverty and will actually have to work for a living. John Gielgud's charming performance as the old gentleman's gentleman is the highlight of the film. A recommended comedy.
