* SlowPacedBeginning: Actually, the issue is that the the opening scene at the fundraising gala is kind of disorienting. It tosses almost all the film's main characters at us in quick succession and sets up the basic premise in short bursts of conversation. Once Archie and Petulia leave and go to the hotel, things settle down and it's easier to get into the film.
