A New Leaf (1971)

A playboy squanders his wealth and must seek out a new source to maintain his idle rich lifestyle, and the easy way is to find a rich woman, marry her, and murder her.

Likable light comedy with an - as always- excellent Walter Matthau, but leisurely paced and with a somewhat abrupt ending.

Halliwell*: "Agreeably mordant comedy which sparkles in patches rather than as a whole."

Maltin**1/2: "Amusing comedy...Many funny moments, and May is terrific, but it's wildly uneven."
