This film came on TV on the weekend, and I thought I'd check out whether it was worth seeing. Oh man, it felt weird typing this title into google. How times have changed, with political correctness and big brother gone rife. Scary. The film itself is a perfect example of how times have changed. Deeply sexist, but very, very '60s, in a mad-men way. Absolutely fascinating looks as the aspirational Manhattan lifestyle back then. The sexual politics are highly suspect today, but the heart of the story is timeless - a happy bachelor who finds the rug ripped from under his feet so suddenly that (despite his growing love for his wife, and the way she treats/loves him) it freaks him out. I really loved the intro sequences of the bachelor pad (divine set and stage work) and the way the lead basis his comic strip drawings on real world recreations of his stories - the precursor of CGI animation. The supporting cast are variable, but Lemmon and Terry are typically brilliant. The imaginative opening and evocative setting relaxes into a ho-hum romantic story and a "murder" courtroom subplot that is pretty weak, and feels a bit tacked on, despite inspiring the title....that title. Whew. Some interesting predictive phrase came up while I was googling "How to Murder..."
