It consists of a series of short sequences loosely inspired by Dr. David Reuben 's book of the same name. The credits at the start and close of the film are played over a backdrop of a large mass of white rabbits, to the tune of " Let's Misbehave " by Cole Porter. An August review by Time said that many of the film's ideas "sound good on paper" but that the "skits wind down rather than take off from the ideas"; the film includes "some broad, funny send-ups of other movies Fantastic Voyage , La notte , and its fair share of memorably wacky lines" but that "overall it is just Woody marking time and being merely a little funnier".
