Time Out says

This starts out as one of those hard-boiled romances in which Matthau and Burnett, performing with characteristic professionalism, graduate from affair to marriage while Julius J Epstein's script supplies them with suitably grudging wisecracks. But then it gets taken over by a series of soap-style catastrophes: he screws his secretary, their baby dies, they separate, she's in a 'rest home'...but everything's really all right, of course. There's even a moment when you think she's going to marry campy Rene Auberjonois - unfortunately not. Often incidentally funny, though.
