What a Way to Go!

This 1964 film is one of my favorite movies. I love it for lots of reasons, one of which is the fact that the cast includes both Robert Mitchum and Gene Kelly. What a Way to Go! is a fun, feel-good film. The reviews are horrible, I know, but the movie is such great fun that I honestly want to sit down with the reviewers and watch it with them to see how they "missed" it.

Here's a clip from the beginning of the film:

Bright Lights Film Journal doesn't like it. Variety doesn't like it either. The New York Times says it "lacks wit and grace."
