Bothered and bewildered

Watched it twice on the plane and fell asleep after the first hour both times. What is wrong with this movie? On paper it has everything it needs to be a screwball classic, cute story, classy writer/director team, cast of proven winners, great music. Nicole clearly adores cloning Marilyn (but don’t they all) and Caine/Maclean are in form. But it just doesn’t work. Shame. Best moment is during the romance montage (yeah right) when Sinatra suddenly starts singing Witchcraft and you are suddenly reminded that real greatness suddenly gives you a chill.
