One of the greatest films of all time, no doubt about it.

Can't believe this dated garbage beat Psycho for Best Director and Best Art Direction.

Incredible film, Jack Lemmon was spectacular, and for me Shirley Maclaine performed her part phenomenally. The film takes you on a fun ride culminating in a perfectly satisfying conclusion. Top 5 for me no doubt.
