A Touch Of Class Review


Good
George Segal steals the show (as usual) in this romantic comedy, but it's Glenda Jackson who won the Oscar for A Touch of Class. Her stuffy and dour character (as usual) isn't really anything special -- she's the straight man to Segal's hambone, a married man who's desperately trying to get the British Jackson into bed, despite his old age (back spasms, and so on). A Touch of Class tries to turn infidelity into comedy gold, as many of its 1970s compatriots also did, victims of the sexual revolution. Too bad that today, the film is dated, relying too much on slapstick humor and saddled with now-stale gags. Hilarious for its time? (Hilarious enough for a Best Picture nomination?) You be the judge.
