Indeed, it is supposed to be one of the greatest comedies ever made but, to be honest, even though I thought it was quite enjoyable and entertaining, I can’t say I wasn't really blown away by the whole thing.

'The Apartment' stars Jack Lemmon as C.C. Baxter, an office clerk who curries favor with the executives in his office by giving them the key to his small apartment for the odd afternoon dalliance. Among them his is his callous boss, J.D. Sheldrake, who Baxter eventually learns is using his place to sleep with Miss Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine), the sweet elevator operator the clerk has loved from afar. When Sheldrake coldly dumps the vulnerable young woman, she tries to commit suicide, but is saved by the intervention of Baxter.
