Don’t Make Waves is a mildly amusing film which never gets off the ground in its intended purpose of wacky comedy. Based on Ira Wallach’s novel, Muscle Beach, film stars Tony Curtis and Claudia Cardinale.

Script has a Southern California setting, mixing romance, infidelity, beach antics and sky diving with utter confusion as Curtis plays a frantic young man and Cardinale a peppery import with an accent.

Plot(?) gets underway as femme’s car causes Curtis’ Volkswagen to plunge down a hillside and burn, during which Curtis’ pants and all his worldly possessions also go up in flames. Driving home with femme to look at her insurance policy, Curtis finds himself involved in her romance with a swimming pool operator, cheating on his wife.
